I hiked this trail on a 97-degree day, and it was a challenge! Though surrounded by houses, the trail feels relatively secluded and there's quite a bit of shade. It's one of my favorite hikes in the city.
Only down side is that it is on the north side of the hill, which means there isn't always direct sunlight. If you like shade then this hike is for you and overlooks much of the valley.
Lots of trails and a moderate level, It's a little hard to find the trail head from the Willacre parking lot.
Loved the rainforest area! If you want a longer hike park at Willacre, hike the Willacre loop and as you exit the park to enter the street portion the trail head is on your right between some pretty fancy houses.
