Beautiful scenery with some nice mild inclines to make it decent enough exercise for the day. We went on a Wednesday around 6:30 and there were only a few hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Great views and easy parking. Highly recommend and would go again.

Very nice trail with a good mix of views. Will definitely come again.

Excellent Trail...Plenty of Shade...Free Parking...Friendly People...would totally go again.

sooo dusty but great views of the bay. not really in the redwoods at all lots of sun

Solid elevation with an incredible view at the top!

Excellent for a short walk, great scenary.

Hiked this trail looping the opposite way, which seemed easier in my opinion. Great views, loved the experience, however if you start mid-afternoon there are endless clouds of bugs in the forest areas by the creek. We spotted someone with a dog that was wearing a bug net around its face, and I wish I had done the same. Seems to be large knats, so nothing that seems to bite, but I kept a brisk pace through those parts just in case.

Came here for a hike, but probably wouldn’t come back for a regular hike. Noticed mountain bikers and trail runners, and it seems like a great trail for that. The hike itself was just so so- not the most scenic or interesting in this area.

Not the most scenic hike I have done. I hiked during an extreme drought, I was disappointed to find out that the waterfall were completely dried out. The last part of the trail is extremely steep, a hiking stick can really come in handy.

Great loop for a trail run. Not a ton of views but a good amount of sun/shade and change in terrain.

Hiked this trail in early July with my husband who walks with a cane. Chose it due to its great reviews and ‘easy’ rating. Bad choice. First, the listed length of 2.1 miles is only correct if you take the connector trail between the lower and upper paths. The whole loop as shown on AllTrails is easily another mile or more. Second, there is significant elevation change and parts of the trail were quite steep and difficult for my husband to manage. Also narrow and overgrown with weeds including poison oak. A few nice views but mostly dense forest, which at least provides plenty of shade. The only bench we found was close to the parking area. It was pretty challenging for my husband, and I would rate the difficulty as moderate, not easy. We returned to find our car broken into, rear and passenger windows smashed. No valuables stolen except my husband’s thrift store jacket and a bag of used books. All in all a disappointing experience.

Beautiful picturesque trail that is almost completely shaded so it's great for hot sunny days. The top half is super easy but at the bottom it gets harder with a few switchbacks to climb.

So thankful for all of the shade! Definitely saved me on a hot morning. The uphill climbing was a littleeee rough but the views at summit made it all worth it!

Trail was a great length for the evening. Elevation change was just right for a workout and the views and sunset were perfect. Would definitely do this one again.

If you’re a beginner trail runner like me, I’d just do the Sequoia Bayview trail as an out-and-back. Beautiful trees, found it quite tranquil in the morning. Going west on the Cinderella trail is SUPER steep downhill and quite rocky. Fun to hike, but slightly terrifying if you’re a new trail runner.

love this trail, just another treasures in the Oakland hill. Great for hiking, jogging, biking. Theres areas available for bbq picnics, and large bbq gatherings. I love the creeks running along the trails and the large redwoods for kids to climb on.

Tried it out today (7/6) in the afternoon. It was okay, don’t think I’d do it again or recommend it, honestly.

Pro: there’s a good mix of terrain, from wide flat paths through tall trees to narrow paths through grassy hillside, easy access from main roads in Oakland, mostly shady paths, very few other people hiking it and only a couple of bikers, a good bit of free parking

Con: the trails are marked VERY poorly (had I not had this app, I would have been terribly lost), parts of the trail are very narrow which makes getting out of the way for bikers a bit difficult, you can hear planes flying overhead and traffic on the interstate on a good bit of the trail, I spent most of the time looking at the ground making sure I wouldn’t trip over the numerous rocks and wasn’t able to enjoy the actual trail

relatively easy for moderately active people. Nice variety of scenery: sun shade forest stream. gradual elev changes, well maintained except for fallen trees and small turns that maybe confusing. but all of the trails bring you back a loop

really lovely and wonderful changes of elevations and sceneries

Nice hike. Took about 2 hours at a leisurely pace. Great mix of scenery and views.

Nice easy trail with informative signs about the plant life - will bring visitors & friends back on this one!

my backyard! :)

We had a lot of fun on the sunset trail, lots of great views and we didnt run into many people.

Last week, nice one-hour trail!

A very nice hike, very nice views on the path. It was a bit hot so don’t forget to bring enough water! Especially with kids.

Great trek for my abilities.

Awesome challenging hike with great views.

Great hike for 360 views around mnt. Diablo. Started at 9:30 from Juniper Campground (note it takes 25-30 min to drive the curvy road full of bicyclists on a Saturday morning from the park entrance.) I took 4 hours 45 min including 30 minutes to explore the summit. Trails are steep at times but never for too long.
