Instead of going out and back on the Briones Road Trail, I made a loop by going up to the Mott Peak Trail and the down to the Abrigo Valley Trail. This way I made the hike a bit invigorating and a little more interesting. Total distance was 4.4 miles with elevation 709 feet. It was still a moderate hike. For detail please my recorded track.

Briones was my go to hiking area close to the house for a decade. Great place to hike in the winter and spring. Not uncommon to see a few deer and the last time i was there in june I saw a Coyote about 200 yards away. We were peeking at each other through some trees... It was one of my training areas to do a few backpacking trips.

Excellent trail. It's fun to see the cows. I'd like go to again when the grass is green.

Easy short hike, under 2 hours. Nice scenery, some steep inclines and declines but not entirely uphill the entire time :) It was cool to hang out with the cows in the field, but mind the cow poop all over the trail too. Our hike turned into a game of dodging poop for a while there, which was not in the least pleasant!

Great trail but got hit by a downpour up on the ridge. Other than that lots of fun
