Good for walking with slight inclines. Lots of shade. Not too many people and almost everyone wearing masks.

Beautiful day, a few clumps of wildflowers on the bay side. Got there at 830 and there were very few parking spots left.

Great trail with phenomenal views of the San Francisco Bay. Lots of wildlife including muskrats, several species of birds. Bike friendly as well.

Gorgeous at this time of year with lots of beautiful flowers and rolling green hills. No shade (which isn’t an issue in March) but something to be wary of in the summer months. Signage was a bit confusing so we veered off into side trails towards the end and weren’t able to connect to the Meadowlark loop.

HikingGreat!

This was one of my daughters and I’s most favorite hikes in the Bay Area . So scenic and breezy , with rolling green hills . We really want to come back here for a picnic on a nice sunny day . The trail is nice and long and also leads you through some rock formations that have little plaques that tell a story along the way . You’ll see what i mean ;D

We did the trail on top of the hills instead of the flat one surrounded. It’s pretty windy up there so bring a jacket. No shade - make sure you bring your sunglasses and put on sunscreen. Kinda rare to see the hills to be this green in the Bay Area. Nice time to enjoy this hike in the spring after a few rains. We parked outside the entrance and that’s added an extra 1 mile hike one way. Mostly flat, not very challenging.

It was a deviation from many of the tree/forest trails on the Peninsula. The views were of open wetlands, soft grass covered hills, and the salt marshes. It was a beautiful, gentle hike on a gorgeous day. The only thing to keep in mind for those with dogs is that the meadowlark loop back isn't dog-friendly so you'd either have to backtrack or break the rules.
