Very Nice. A lot of water after the rains. A bit muddy but not something an average runner cannot handle. Its unfortunate that it closed for bikes at this season.
Trail is closed to horses and bikes at that time of the season - that makes it a nice and quiet run ! A little slippery after yesterday's rain though. Great trail!
Nice hike post turkey coma. Clear marked and great views of SF the day we went
First hike since we moved here a few weeks ago. Fab walk, wonderful natural walk.
Fantastic. This hike really gives you the feeling of being far far away from the bay area. The vista west from black mountain is well worth the climb.
Beautiful view many trails for biking
Gorgeous views! Bring a lot of water since it can get hot.
Great trail for a day hike on the weekend. Plenty of shaded and open space parts of the trail and beautiful views along the way.
