Short hike, but great views! saw some rock climbers. I wore my hiking boots because I was not sure what to expect, but glad that I did because there was lots of opportunities for a clumsy person like myself to roll their ankles haha. Took less than an hour to complete, which allowed us to take in the view and have a snack!

Easy practically flat trail. Beware lots of bike riders, some are nice enough to let you know they are coming close. Busy on the weekends. Nice waterfall at the end of the trail to refresh yourself in.

very sad to say...no clear begining... so crowded I could not even enjoy it...for me not a fun adventure

took the north entrance to the south and walked back to my car since it was in between open gate hours took 2 pups and we all had a good time

Love everything about this hike.

Not really a hike but not really a walk either. Great training location with lots of options in side trails and such. My normal route covers about 6 miles.

no water right now, very overgrown. would be great in season

Great short hike in a quiet setting. Paved narrow road all the way to the trailhead. I took the lower creek trail in. Creek is mostly dry and I lost the trail in a couple of spots and had to brush bash and boulder scramble. I took the upper trail on the return trip of the loop, easy to follow and open. I did not see anyone else the entire day on a Friday so it's a good solo get away with moderate elevation gain and loss.

Short but a good workout especially the loop trip. Steep and rutted trail with a lot of traffic. Views from the peak are great. Not much shade, early mornings are best IMO. Plenty of parking. No fee but donations are appreciated.

Fun hike for any ages.

Beautiful hike. Difficult but worth it! Start early park closes gates strictly 5pm

Beautiful trail with some good shade.

Perfect to test our skills

A really mild, relaxing hike! There is plenty of nature and rolling hills to see. Not much incline, and there is a pond at the base of the hike!

Excellent

I was able to enjoy a 5 mile run here. I wish the trail extended the entire way instead of having to run in the bike lane on the 101. Gorgeous view otherwise.

This was one of the best hikes! Highly recommend it

I take the shortcut trail going up on the right (west) side, after the housing area and the large water tank. This hike is only about three miles, but is great for getting the legs, heart and lungs pumping because of steep incline.

Hike this regularly. It's my outdoor gym, gets me ready ready for bigger and better things!

nice hills, good distance, good work out, just not much of a scenery.

That’s good one for biking and rent boat at the end of the hiking for $75 all day.

I love this trail, especially in the Fall. I bring my labrador and we have a great time.

A flat and easy trail. Good for quick hike to enjoy the outdoors. Saw different types of birds. A descent outing.

Pick up you dog s**t and trash you filthy animals. Don’t bring your aggressive dogs on trail; otherwise it is a nice stroll.

good one! good trail running

A good training trail to maintain stamina and balance. Choose the loop route to the summit, reverse to the cross, then back to the summit.

A nice bit of ups and downs...
