dogs on leash
Trying to find the beginning of the trail is pretty difficult unless your from the neighborhood. I was actually walkkng up and down mountain across from the school parkkng lot about 15 mins A woman noticed me going up the first set of stairs semingly going to nowhere and asked if it was the trailhead. Guess she remembered it as a child. I said i think so but theresno sign. Luckily I ran into some nice folks who directed me to the 2nd set of stairs a bit farther down. These stairs look as if they are to the real estate office building they are next too but they actually do lead you to the very beginning of the trail! Yay! Lots of shade and historic signs about the trains that use to rin through that area. Mostly people that live around the neighborhood off Snake road and montclair were on the trail. Nice views of the bay and super flat and easy walk.
Not too hard, not too easy. Mostly shaded, went during the week and it was pretty empty but I'd expect it to be more traveled during the weekend.
It was a little confusing the first time around and I took a couple wrong turns, so bring a map. Great little hike tho
I did this trail, and a few others in the network, this morning. I gave it 5 stars because it's a super awesome network of trails I definitely did not expect based on its location. It's a multi use area so expect to see mountain bikes and possibly horses as well. I came across almost every kind of terrain for all skill levels with amazing views to boot! I highly suggest it if you're in the area
Nice hike that doesn't get a lot of use. Situated near horse boarding facilities so it probably gets as much horse and bike activity as hikers. Good connector between Redwood and Chabot. I've made it a day hike starting in upper Redwood and going to the bottom of Chabot.
Really nice trail. Very kid-friendly. The slope is generally nice and easy and there's lots of shade.
One thing to note: this trail does not require dogs to be on-leash. 50' in to the trailhead if you're starting from the apartment complex end, there's a sign that clear says it's a dogs-off-leash trail and then it has some rules about dogs needing to reply to voice commands.
Not a huge deal, but wanted to put that out there.
