Lots of shade, decent inclines. Not too crowded even during weekends. Good running trail.

Very nice trail - good length and difficulty. Enough trees and easy to follow.

Amazing views, very clear trail and footing easy for running shoes. Challenging 3-4 hour hike!

We took the Ridge Loop to the Saratoga Gap Loop for a beautiful 5.2 mile hike. Stunning views and a moderate hike with some hills and a small amount of rock climbing. Many shady areas to cool down and enjoy the surroundings, even on a hot day. Halfway through the hike you can go to the campground for bathrooms and to fill your water bottle, if you need. Busy on the weekend, but did not detract from the hike.

late afternoon around 5 pm was mostly shaded. sounds of the rushing water was very pleasant in Los Gatos creek. unfortunately, noise from adjacent highway 17 can be heard for much of the trail.

Great hike, but not much to see at the peak except a couple of transmission pylons. Watch out for hornets and rattlesnakes.

Great trail for a casual hike! Aside from climbing through some rocky areas this trail is very easy. It has some pretty great views, just make sure to get there early (8am)! When we got there at 8 there were only a few cars parked and we only saw about 10 people, but on our way out it was a constant stream of people trying to hike...and the parking lot was a nightmare, you won't find parking!

The views here are incredible! Make sure to grab a map... Some spots aren't marked well.

Started at the intersection with highway 9 under the fog. Ended up at Rancho del Oso 28km away. Mostly downhills and under the shade of the trees. Very nice run.

Pretty easy hike with some cool rocks to climb
