Dry and hot at 830 am. Did alittle over half the trail out and back due to time constraints. The last 2 miles coming back is mostly uphill but relatively shaded. I'll wait until it cools down though to do this trail again. Didn't see anyone until the last mile. Loved being out there solo.

Beautiful site, lots of people. Not great for off leash unless in a side field.

We stared at the park and walked the stairs thinking that was the starting point for the trails... It wasn't. We got really frustrated. Also, the park definitely needs a touch up, so much graffiti it's really sad! Wish we weren't in a drought so the fountains could run. Finally found the trails after a short drive down the ranger station. Trails are really nice, which they had printed maps to take along. Views were incredible. Again, wish we weren't in a drought cause I bet with water flowing it's beautiful. Loved seeing all of the Bay Area. I also liked that it wasn't too much incline and was flat for most of the trail we chose (I think sunset trail was the name). Dogs are supposed to be leashed but people don't follow the rules. I kept my dog on a leash and got nervous when dogs came over to her with their owners farther behind. Overall it was great when we finally found the trails and I enjoyed myself.

I'm a new trail rider and it was just enough to keep you pushing but not to difficult to make you not like what your doing. Beautiful scenery and the people on the trails are all considerate.

This is my all time East Bay park. There are so many places to go in this park with beautiful new growth redwoods.

The trail has a nice paved trail, it wasn't too hard. You don't need to climb anything with your hands. It's quite relaxing. There's a few restrooms and benches along the way. There are camp sites and people around just in case you got lost. Parking has a $5 and if you have your dog with you, it's $7.
