Gets SO muddy in the rain! Went when it was pouring today with my puppy. She was in heaven! I was slipping and sliding. Limited parking for when the weather is actually good, but I’d definitely do this hike again

Great hike, very limited parking at the trailhead

Easy; good for dogs

Expect the unexpected here.. this was pretty challenging for me! But the clear views on a perfect day made it one of my best trail runs!!

Beautiful trail in San Jose but feels set apart. The park ranger was super friendly too!

beautiful trail, it was in the easier side.

Beautiful and cozy trail and it’s mixed with the nature. Very relaxing.

fun trail under 3 miles but has a decent incline to make up for it. good if you're interested in a quick one. not very crowded after 10:00am. dog friendly.

Nice uphill climb with a great view at the top! It was super dry, so no waterfall. But super pretty nonetheless!! ♥️

Nice hike. But, only some of it was shaded and watch out for the bikers.

Nice easy brisk walk in nature.

Nice easy and fast hike but a little brown. Lots of dead/browning shrubbery and trees which was sad. Not super lush but easy trail and good parking - there’s a small lot and there were plenty of spaces available when we went on a Sunday afternoon

Overall nice trail . People have mentioned homeless or not a great area near by. Just park in Hellyer Park by the lake you’ll be fine then go south from there. I’ve done this ride a couple of dozen times. Most of first half of trail plenty of shade second half some but not much. Also first half busier with hikers, dogs, families once you pass fishing ponds much less traffic on trail. The trails is mostly flat with some gentle rolling small hills. The park about 5 miles past Hellyer has a bathroom the next is at the end. There are a few water spots and benches every so often. Once at the end you can continue another mile, mile and half to Anderson dam the last quarter mile up to dam is kinda steep just be warned but I enjoy going there.

Great for biking. Goes even further than the map shows.

Good trail for a morning workout. Parked at Prospect road lot. Was very crowded when I arrived at 9.15am but luckily got a parking spot. Parking gets freer during later hours. Trail was well marked. Not shaded in quite a few places.

Short but steep trail- I wouldn’t do this trail in the heat of day, but the view at the top is worth the hike.

Love it! Great for a quick trail run with a good elevation workout and lots of shade! Parking is super convenient and free!

I really like this trail. I went today and make 30.4miles round trip. At the beginning is a little busy with kids, dogs and some people don’t follow the stay at the right rule, but once I got further is was less crowded. Overall was a nice trail. Love it

It is a short sweet hike with a lot of elevation gain. Love it

I never used to hike before after coming here I'm addicted! If you like nature up close and personal this is it.

Went there with my dog. We arrived very early on a weekday so we had no trouble finding parking. Morning sun was not too hot so we were fine even though there’s not too much shade. We made a detour to Hunter’s Point and the view from there ‘s wonderful!

One of my favorite places to visit :) Have been going for years! Love to watch the birds, cows grazing , sunsets or just take my camera out for a spin while relaxing away from the chaos of San Jose.

Great trail, good shade, moderate, good for dogs on short leash (shared with mountain bikers).
