I do this trip often. Its a good wide trail, good incline and lots of cows to see!

most beautiful but sometimes too crowded and unfortunately cars

Great trail for my man and small pup. Lots of beautiful sights and varying terrain.

My favorite place for an evening run after work.

Nice shaded trail. Just a bit hard to find.

Great trail for running/ hiking since it is paved. Relatively easy hike more than moderate. Great view at the top esp during sunset. Once you get to the top it’s relatively flat. Finding a parking is pretty hard esp in the afternoon. Did saw a tarantula a few times during my hike

Very enjoyable! Took my 68+ uncles and aunt here and they completed it with ease. We actually did the whole loop it was about 4 miles total. Awesome photo op at the peak of the hill.

A few very steep (but short) hills otherwise a nice rolling hike. Great views, completely in the sun, so wear sunscreen & bring a hat and your water! Paved trail, well maintained, great for strollers but NO dogs allowed. Parking can be a challenge esp in the mornings-8:00am-11:00am, so be patient.

It was a great walk with the dog. Up and back nice open trail-

Nice shaded trail on a hot day. We had fun exploring the historic sites along the trail and we even saw a few deer at the end!

Cows are the best part of this hike, and the view of the city.

Great trail! Mostly shaded with some spots out in the open. Signs can be confusing at times, so I used the map on AllTrails to make sure I was headed in the right direction. Definitely some ascending/descending, but not too difficult. Not stroller friendly.

Nice beginner hike. Can be completed in an hr and a half.

Free and plentiful parking. Trail starts at a beach where you can enjoy watching surfers. Heads steadily up and actually away from the coast - follow signs for trail, or if you choose get sidetracked on the smaller trails that run closer to the coast- just know they don’t necessarily connect back to this trail. On clear days you’re rewarded with views and on foggy days with ethereal beauty - can’t go wrong.

Like the PG &E trail.

Gorgeous campus!

An entertaining trail. I am not a good jumper, and it is still fun to ride the 6 segments of the Flow trail. I think this will be more fun over time.

Ideal time would be October-April if coming from afar. It’s green and therefore full of oxygen. Remaining months are nice too, just not green — dry and golden instead.

I enjoyed it very much and the view was awesome! It was very relaxing and we biked 15 miles!!! I recommend this trail for kids and families.
