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?!
Great ride, challenging but doable.
It was beautiful and the weather was nice. There are a lot of mountain bike riders but they all watched out for us hikers.
Nice clean path and shady
During the week when the park isn't as crowded, this is a fantastic place for trail running. Many trails, nice breezes on hot days, and beautiful views.
