Love this trail I went up the grotto side good work out !
good hike. took the grotto hill up
The hike was great! Grotto trail OMG ! Must have walking sticks. Oh one more thing don't dance on your way down or you will end up with a twisted ankle like me
Nice city skyline views. Steeper than you think. Bring a stick
This was good! Challenging and local. I'll try to go a little earlier in the day next time to avoid the blazing midday sun.
That is a tough hike. Counter clockwise is definetely the way to go. Don't count on any shade! challenging hike.
hike up run down!
nice steep climb, but an easy trail. dont recommend it for first timers of in the summer on a hot day.
Summertime start early has no shade great views of SFV good cardio
Good hiking trail. Basic hiking gear is helpful (shoes, socks, hat and stick) as the ascent is a bit of a challenge as well as the decent. Overall, good views and not too crowded.
great trail great workout love the views!
Grotto trail on the ascent was challenging but a good work out. The return going down clockwise is a bit gentler with better views. Enjoyable morning trek.
really nice place for mtb
We actually hiked East Canyon to O'Melveney Park. Great trail but you have to go around some gates/fences set up by The Gas Company. They really need to create access for hikers/bikers. Anyway, great hike but steep dropping down into O'Melveney Park. Beautiful park with plenty of picnic tables and shade to have some "wine time" after your hike. Only issue is the trail is heavily traveled on the O'Melveney side.
Starting out the hike you think it's going to be very peaceful. It's very pretty at first when you're in the park. Then you get on the trail and it's not forgiving - just up, up and more up. Once you get near the top you are given the option to shoot off to the left to finish the last 1/3 of the loop (The Grotto Trail). Going down the Grotto Trail was very slippery, I was really wishing I'd worn my hiking shoes instead of my running shoes. Luckily since I was very careful I didn't fall. Normally I lead large hiking groups and I wouldn't do it on this part of the trail because it's too dangerous.
The views were awesome but it was difficult getting to the top on the Nature Trail. A lot of steep hills
The trail is fun.. The trail is not that easy but it's not crazy hard.. Definitely a good work out.. It wasn't crazy crowded which is a plus..
