This was my first hike in 20 years. I'm pretty out of shape so this was pretty challenging for me but I loved it. I manged to make it to the Upper Loop in about 45 minutes. Can't wait to go again the next time I'm in the area.

I rated this a 5 because 1) I'm local and think it's great since it is located nearly in the heart of town and is easily accessible from the Plaza 2) it's clean and the people who hike it regularly take care of it; there's also a journal at the top to jot down thoughts, impressions, etc. and 3) it's attached to the Montini trail that heads west so you can actually get a few good miles of hike/trail run in if you hike up Overlook, head down partway and then take the other trail at the fork where one of the stone benches is. If you head west into Montini, you can go all over those trails to get a good run since the pathways are less rocky than the Overlook side and less travelled as well.

Great hike right in the heart of downtown sonoma. Bring a bottle if stellar wine with you, or do a tasting at Roche after. One of the only hikes I've been on and have not had to haul trash from non-leave no tracers. Tldr; beautiful clean hike in the heart of wine country CA.

Nice short hike with a great "overlook" reward of Sonoma at the top, complete with a site map of what you're seeing in the valley. Not difficult.

Great morning or afternoon hike. Doesn't take too long, and has some of the best Sonoma valley views. No dogs :(
