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.

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.
