Great hike with beautiful views
Very beautiful! Got to see lots of amazing animals and plants!
I walk this trail several times a month. I like the hills and the wildlife
Nice trail; not too tough, but lots of people! Worthy views if you go on a clear day.
A lot of incline. Challenging, if you're not in shape. Some shade.
* PG&E trail: By far, this trail is the toughest and steepest of the three, though it is wider than the other two. A nice shade by trees in parts. This trail provides a lot of vista points for views of the valley below and beyond. You can see the bay water.
* Wildcat Loop trail: Single-lane trail, completely shaded. Almost no incline. Seems to be a very popular trail; there was more traffic here than on the other two trails. No vistas from this trail because this is at the bottom of the hill.
* Coyote trail: Single-lane trail, completely shaded. There is a bit of incline before it joins the PG&E trail.
An elevation gain of 928 feet, as reported by Garmin.
PG&E trail was pretty tough for me but definitely worth it!! Next time I will go all the way up!
This is a nice walk. It's primarily a fire road that makes for easy walking. The first couple of miles climb about 700 feet, so be prepared to work from the start. Once you get to Wildcat and Coyote, things become more single track trail and are mostly downhill. Don't forget to stop for some breathtaking views of the valley at around 2 mi.
For practicing half-dome, we trained on PG& E to Black Mountain via Quarry trail; round trip of 13 miles with elevation gain of 2500 feet.
Quick moderate hike with nice views.
