Great trail with so much to see. Not to hard and not easy. Going to do trail running next time.

The trail was re-vamped in the beginning of 2016, and made it less full suspension dependent riding. Less technical and more flow. This is a great week workout ride.

Lots of mountain bikers!

Great loop to do with young kids (just the turtleback loop). Did it at dusk and heard frogs, owls, plus great views of the east bay. Cool.

This is just a question! Has anyone birded here? What is it like or do the bikes etc scare the birds off?!

It was beautiful and the weather was nice. There are a lot of mountain bike riders but they all watched out for us hikers.
