trail locations for Livermore, California

Kinda boring scenery

Very dry and deserted needs more people

Nice views of the lake and a good spring and fall hike that's pretty easy for most.

Pros:
Restrooms with flushing toilets & showers that were surprisingly clean.

Hiking trails close by.

Good camp grounds for large groups.

Dogs are allowed.

Cons:
No cell phone service what so ever. Not ideal if an emergency were to occur or if you are expecting additional people to meet you at the campsite.

No electric outlets if you want to pump air into an air mattress. You have to come equipped with your own power inverter that plugs into your car's cigarette lighter.

No in & out parking privileges, although I know my friends were able to get back in without having to pay again.

great hike. gorgeous views, rocks, and oak trees. rolling hills.

The Big Burn does have some really nice views along the way. Was very surprised to find water (Johnny's Pond) along the way, but the falls were bone dry at this time of year.

It was a beautiful hike. Little shade at times so wear your 45. It has great views as you hike up to the hill which takes you very close to the water. I had lunch in front of the water and enjoyed every second. I would do it again. PS. There is a fee at entrance. I paid $6. #hikingjunkie

Great hike. Great views. Shared the trail with runners, mountain bikers, and horse riders.

Nice easy stroll if you go in the spring before the heat.

It's was a cool hike...took eagles trail nice n easy...down side is hella cow shit but that didn't bother us, plus side I have a dog and everyone up there were really pet friendly. Bring water and bug spray.

What. A. Workout. This trail is definitely not an easy one. Most of the trail to the falls, which is ohlone wilderness trail, was incline. The entire thing was basically a roller coaster. The difficulty caught me and my dog off guard. Carry lots of water!!! As for the falls, I have seen better but it was still well worth the hike :)

One of the toughest hikes I've done. Started from Del Valle and made it to Murrieta Falls. I would recommend it! be ready for a tough hike, there are sections that are very steep, all my leg muscles were burning but the day was cloudy and cool so it wasn't terrible. The place is well maintained, and it is worth the price, if you start from del valle the park charges 5 dollars each permit.
