Light Traffic Map

easy, paved trail with beautiful views. great for kids or folks with disabilities.

Great view, easy walk, and the dog loved it.

This was a great hike, but it is NOT easy. The Tony Look portion along the reservoir is a narrow trail with slight elevation changes that I would classify as easy. Once you get to Coyote Ridge it’s a huge grind to the top. Beautiful and worth doing but be prepared for a strenuous climb and bring some water. The loop took us 2.5 hours and we are one very fit and two reasonably fit adults.

We went on this hike today and it was pleasant moderate hike. The hike is steeper in the beginning but becomes gradual later. Both way trip took around 2.5hrs. Would recommend going early since parking gets full.

Fun trail along grassy hills to creek with waterfall.

Beautiful views! Have done this several times and it never gets old. Sunset hikes are the best here :)

easy and next to the Levi's Stadium. parked on the side street. dog friendly

This place is beautiful, especially if you come during winter / spring when everything is still green. Very peaceful and serene.

There is a trail where dogs are allowed to walk off-leash. Our dogs loved it.

You can also do water activities here like canoeing, rowing, and fishing.

I’d recommend clockwise first to knock out the big hill early. You’ll be able to take advantage of the shade alongside the lake on your way back. Quiet and far fewer people than Redwood.

We did the loop counter-clockwise which put the big hill about 4.5 miles into the hike. I would recommend tackling that early. Beautiful views of the reservoir.

Good for beginners! Steep parts for the good burn which ever way you decide to start. Path does fork a lot and connects with other trails so we had to use the trail map to stay in loop. It gets narrow in some spots, luckily there were many places to pull to side. Went on a Sunday at 9am for our first time and didn’t see very many folks on trail until we got back to car around 10:30. Large herbalist group had just arrived and we barely squeezed our way out of there. We plan to come back the next weekend.

Very easy walk on the path to see the waterfalls. Next time I would love to go further into the hills into actual hiking trails. The main fire road was packed and people were everywhere on the falls. Many people don’t know how to respect nature. It was actually kind of sad. Beautiful place being ruined my uneducated people.

The trails are heavily trafficked but feature good paths among redwoods and a large meadow. Views are mostly limited. Enjoyable and there are many opportunities to tailor the route to your liking.

Not so much a trail as a closed, paved road, which suited me fine. Perfect for a relatively straightforward run. Went out on a Sunday just after 9:00 and it was pretty desolate out there. Since you are in the middle of nowhere with no one around, bring a friend or other self defense equipment if that might unnerve you. Otherwise it’s pretty scenic and relatively easy. Can access from either end, with the only significant hill at the Mesa Ridge entry area. Would definitely do it again to run. Would not consider it for walking/hiking unless you want something easy and to take pics.

I agree this is a nice walk and at a moderate level EXCEPT for about 1/4 mile which is really steep. Parking much better on Woodside road side when compared with starting from the skyline side.

Starts out steep, but fairly light once up top. Descent on Coyote Ridge is long and, at times, quite steep. Wear good hiking shoes. Portions on Lookout Trail and Tony Look trail are single file trails only. Much of Tony Look trail is under tree cover, as is Lookout Trail, but the rest if pretty exposed, so keep that in mind on very sunny and hot days.
Do not suggest young children due to overall duration (abt 3 hours), but use your judgement.

Just did this trail. Though it’s just 5.5 miles with all its ups and downs it took a group of us 3 hours. Great hike - just budget the time.

Love this trail, traffic isn’t too bad getting there via Woodside Rd.

Beautiful little hike this time of year. A little wet, but the smell is amazing, and the sounds are so soothing! The stream is running and the falls are gorgeous!

my 1st ever hike. it was cold @ 8 am but the beautiful views along with my music in my ears made it all worth it & that much easier. I'd definitely do this hike again. I finished in 2 hours & 5 minutes.

A nice little hike done in the early days of the regional park, around 1970!

About 2.5 miles in, there is currently a trail detour that is very steep. This part of the trail is collapsed in some areas, and there’s a few fallen trees—don’t go this way.

Nice hike. Cold morning. Suggest going clockwise to hit the hill first to warm up.

Awesome plant life, and Banana Slugs.

Amazing views of rolling hills!

No dogs. Lots of signs say no dogs and no dogs even on leash. Dogs are allowed in other areas of the park.
