The trail is poorly marked. Overall a pretty easy hike and there was no one on the trail. The end of the loop goes through a creepy old cemetery. I wouldn’t recommend this trail.

Great conditions- trail isn’t especially well marked, but navigable. Great way to start the year.

This is a beautiful spot. A leisurely walk in the woods. There is highway noise for the first half hour but then you enter the quiet of the forest. There are many benches to sit in quiet contemplation. In November there was still a few small creeks running and some bugs. To find the trail, park outside the gate in the visitors lot. Enter the gate and follow the road on the left. Walk down onto a dirt road/path and follow until you come to the flume. Go right to hook up with the trails. There are many trails through here so you can make this hike shorter if you like. This hike skirts around the edge of the forest.

Really great trail! Definitely kind of difficult to find the trailhead, I had to ask someone walking around. Go into the institute and park near the chapel, walk down the hill on the pavement. You’ll see to your left a red stick marker, get onto the grassy area when you see that. Follow the narrow trail downward, you’ll get to what looks like railroad tracks above you (it’s actually a water canal). When you reach the T, turn right. You’ll find the trailhead. I had a map from the person I asked directions from, and I followed the Frontier loop. About 6 miles. Moderate to easy. Slightly overgrown in areas. When you reach the cemetery, the Frontier loop signs disappear, and I took the Manzaneta trail the rest of the way back. Worth it- beautiful! When you get to market number 13- go left to get back to parking a bit faster and reach marker 12. DON’T GO in the late afternoon- my fault, I started at 5pm and ended at 7pm and was absolutely eaten alive. Tons of ankle-height poison oak. Wear pants and boots. Enjoy!

Great hike. It got my heart pumping a few times. More often it got my soul pumping. Open Chaparral, dense sugar pine and black oak, pathways with arched Mirkwood type manzanita forest cover. Just beautiful. Caution, ankle biter height poison oak all around. Make sure to take advantage of the abundant mugwort. Eat a few leaves to prevent the poison oak from affecting you.

Lovely walk in woods, meadows and shrubs. Note previous review was wrong- go through institute gate and turn left rather than right. The rest is correct. We took Owl’s Roost Trail and it did shorten the hike a bit. We were alone on the peaceful trail.

This trail is great if you’re looking for something short, mild, and sweet. Manzanita cathedrals, abundant wildflowers, verdant Meadows, and once you’re on the trail itself it’s actually really quiet. There’s lots of shade and nothing technical. The one significant hill, Cardiac Hill, was very short. To access, park across the street from the Weimar Institute. Walk through the institute gate and take an immediate right, and follow that road as it terminates into a residential parking lot. Keep going straight and you’ll find yourself on a path along the creek. Keep going on that path until you pass underneath a flume structure, then you will see plenty of signage and trails. I was there on a Thursday in April and had the trail to myself. Note that the owls roost trail will actually cut off some of the loop. If you want the full loop, follow the frontier Trail signs. You can also take young children along the flume trail, which is flat and very pretty. No bikes, horses by reservation only. Contact Weimar for more info on that I guess. This was perfect for an off the sofa, season opener.
