Nice hike during April-May when the wild flowers bloom all over the mountain. A very moderate hike with good camping and barbecue area.

Hot today.... It would be much better doing the hikes here in the spring or summer but this is when I was stuck in the area. Pretty ordinary road/trail. Forgot my phone today. Hate not recording tracks... Going home to ocean and redwoods.

Dry and hot... Best done as a winter trail.

Great off-leash area, and it looks like they are currently expanding the trail to access Davis St. There’s also a water fountain with dog access, so no need to carry water.

It’s a good little hike with the family or dog. There’s not much shade, but the views of the rolling hills are good.

Quintessential East Bay Hike - bald open face hills with oak shaded creek trails. Absolutely beautiful during the Spring months- very green with an abundance of wildflowers including poppies all over the place. Beautiful views of the bay. And COWS on the trail! Loved it.

WILDFLOWERS time for April! It is stunning view from trail end near Alta Vista Equestrian Center. 4.5 miles to and out from Garin Regional Park Gate. There are wild flower near the Jorden pond but most significant colorful patches is at the end!

great hike in spring with all the wild flowers, unless you have allergies! Beautiful views of the livermore valley year around.

The outer, paved trail is part of the San Francisco Bay trail. There are some benches where you can sit down and watch the sun set, or watch the planes land and take off from Oakland airport. The interior of the park is under construction right now and they have it all dug up. I'm sure it will be nice once it's completed, but you might want to avoid that section for now.

This is a fantastic trail in which you walk through open grasslands and oak woods and you are always surrounded by the forest covered hills. You can also access the park's group camping area on this trail as well as the out and back Fox Tail Trail. The majority of the elevation is right at the start and then (because it is a loop) right at the end. Plenty of Brush Rabbits and other wildlife to spot. Also some turn of the century farming equipment here and there since this was once a working ranch/farm.

One of my favorite trails. Breath taking views of the Bay, City of Hayward and the San Mateo Bridge. Quite wooded by Zeile Creek. Refreshing to have a very wooded trail in this area.

Did it in "07 along with Garin Peak. Never went back into that trail system again. A lot of wide open spaces that didn't impress...
