Very nice views: on a clear day you can see north to San Francisco, south to San Jose, and many interesting landmarks in between (Stanford, Mt. Diablo, Moffett Airfield, Levi's Stadium, the Apple spaceship campus, etc.). There's a very nice lookout just before the Ewing Hill Trail connects to Black Mountain Trail -- don't miss that! On the west-facing parts of the trail the views are lush, green, and quiet -- very peaceful. The trail has two steep parts: from the trailhead to Black Mountain Trail at the top of the hill (about 1 mile), and from the creek at Hidden Villa to Black Mountain Trail at the top of the hill (also about 1 mile). The rest is fairly easy. The part of the trail in Rancho San Antonio is a well-maintained dirt trail. The part in Hidden Villa is more narrow, rugged, overgrown, and muddy. It's definitely helpful to have the map downloaded on AllTrails as the trail is not well marked. I passed a total of 16 people on a Friday morning. There was also a bunch of kids on a school field trip at Hidden Villa; if you want to bypass that busy section take the Toyon Trail between Hostel Trail and Creek Trail. On the other hand, you may like to say hi to the kids -- one of them pointed out a banana slug to me! : ) My app had the total distance at 6.8 miles; my Garmin watch (which tends to be more accurate) had the distance at 7.4 miles.
