Love the views and great for a trail run!

Overgrown and full of ticks a little boring but once you get near the bay there are there are many different birds to look at.

I got to help build this trail when I was 10 years old.
It's great to see it's still there, not so great to see it in such a sorry state, Thorny bushes block your way, the local cows damage the path during rainy months, and ticks are a constant threat. In the end, your only payoff is a long, unobstructed view of Vallejo's shopping district.

It's great for a quick escape outdoors or a trail run, or prep or hiking season.

Great views but the trail is in terrible condition, completely overgrown with thorny plants. We had to turn back only a half mile in. Unless you have thick pants I’d advise against this hike.

This trail is usually well kept, however it has gone on the wayside as of late. The trail is overgrown, although still hikeable. The ticks are out in serious force. By the time I had noticed, I had a good 30 ticks on my pant legs. Given the trail is overgrown, it gives ticks ample tall grass to cling in wait, while you go walking through the path. If it was groomed properly, this wouldn't be nearly as bad a problem. I did contact the organization responsible for the trail and gave them a heads up.

Love this trail, sad to see it close as they have to rebuild it due to extreme fire damage.

Great hike. I cannot wait to explore it more.

Good views of the bridges. Very green. May be muddy after rain. Good for unleashed dogs.

Great hike if you enjoy wading through sticker bushes, being covering in ticks, and rattle snake threats.

DONT GO!! WORST TRAIL. ENDED UP WITH 27 ticks and had an aggressive run in with a massive bull. Cows are dangerous for dogs especially when they are in the trail and aggressive. Don’t go.

Beautiful during the green seasons. Amazing landscape of rolling green hills, pops of color from wildflowers, and sweeping views of the Bay Area. The hills are perfect for working out, and the ground is soft so it will be easy on the feet and knees. Zero shade, so take a hat, and start early in warmer months.

Open, Fri, Sat and Sunday, lots of cows, open grassland and hills. High point is the view from the ridge. Distant points that can be seen: Diablo. Sierra's, including Pyramid Peak, Mt. Saint Helena, Mt. Veeder, Mt. Tam. and GG bridge towers, if you know where and when to look. Good intermediate hike. Watch for ticks and respect the cows:)

I've walked/ hiked the park for 40 years.
Its in the Pacific Flyway. I've seen many species right here . Eagles, Hummers, Woodpeckers, Swans, Bufflehead, Bluebirds and Vultures to name just few. Bring your binoculars.

Easy to do, and plenty of trails easily viewed on google maps. Do this two or three times a week anywhere from 3 to 7 miles [if you do Dillon Point Rd]

Rode here on 2/19/18 and had a blast! The trails were in great shape. Dry but not dusty, everything was green and super lush, and the wildflowers were just starting to bloom. And as is usually the case here, had almost the entire area to ourselves.

If you're in the East Bay and looking for a fun, challenging place to ride, check this place out.

Great hike in cooler weather, though I imagine in summer would be quite hot with lack of shade. Be aware that trail is very uneven due to cow traffic. Great views from the top of the ridge.

Worst hike I think I have ever gone on. We walked through a very overgrown trail, completely covered by bushes, and then walked on what seemed to be a farming maintenance trail. We didn't even reach the Bay before turning back because it was so boring and unsightly. The farming equipment we walked by at mile 1 should have been a sign.

Fantastic views of the bay! A bit muddy when we went but had a blast and will definitely be back. Keep an eye out for mountain bikers and cows.

This trail is closed for a year due to fire damage.

Good combination of fun downhill (fast, flowy, jumps) and moderate climbing. Can be stretched out to a roughly 18 mile out and back. If you are in the area definitely check it out!

This is a nice hike if you live in the area due to its convenience. A lot of the trails are uneven due to the cows' hoof prints so it's important to step carefully so you don't sprain an ankle. Nice views of the San Pablo Bay along with all the area peaks (Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo, Mt. Saint Helena). You can expand your hike by entering Lynch Canyon Open Space Preserve which connects with Newell OSP.

Very nice view

Not a difficult trail by any means, small bits of rocky terrain to cross. There are a couple of steeper shortcuts if you want to make it slightly challenging at points.
It is an out and back, but has nice views.

Great hike with lots of trails to choose from. All paths have great sights. Parking cost $6 cash or check only so that would’ve been nice to know before arriving but atms and stores are near by to get cash. Well worth it and looking forward to going back and trying more trails. Also pretty cool that here’s a botanical garden with in the park as well. Highly recommend

The loop is washed out because of a tidal flow enhancement project in 2009 where it turned out nature had better ideas as to where the tidal current should go. (according to the sign)

You can hike 2.6 miles out to the bay, and a small part of the loop.

Nice to look back and catch the trails i did before being onsite.

IMPASSABLE AND NOT MAINTAINED. We decided to go clockwise around the loop. This meant we found the IMPASSABLE trail 90% done with the loop, which meant this was an 11.5 mile hike. There is more than 10 feet of fast moving water that no one, regardless of ability, should walk through. Afterwards we see a tiny notice that the trail is out, right next to a big map which doesn't note this.

My legs are fully scratched up from unmaintained trail of sharp brush, starting at the shoreline.

For the previous 5 star reviewer: you clearly didn't take the route in the map.

Starts off at the base of the entrance of Hiddenbrooke Golf Club right off of the highway by way of paved walkway. Trail head begins off of this walkway and is full of great views. At some points only mountains and valleys are viewable. At the peak, you can view the highway as well as the country club as well as bordering neighborhood. Great hike! Lots of small rodents!

The scenery was great, stopped at the gate though after another hiker warned us of snakes beyond the gate. Hiked 2 miles.
