Great beginner hike. Good elevation and descents to keep you interested. Nice views - good mix on sun / shade.
Parking is $5.
Nice mix of shade and sunny spots on the trail. Scenic views once you get up the hill. Fun hike to bring your dog on but watch out for the poison oak.
Great run! Experienced a burn running uphill! Only tracked half of my experience.
Perfect amount of distance and pitch. Don't know if I'd call this "easy." You'll work up a sweat on the way up. Nice greenery, flowers and a view of the reservoir.
For increased distance and challenge I started the Laurel Loop Trail from the Bay Area Ridge Trail; then onto the Kennedy Creek Trail, the Upper Sea Foam Trail, and then headed back to the Laurel Loop Trail. The view to the San Pablo Reservoir was breathtaking.
Good for everyday hiking
