amazing trail, will definitely come back again. the entire hike was scenic and surrounded by trees. not so strenuous and beautiful the whole loop. there are many mountain bikers on this path as well

I don’t know why people were saying this trail isn’t easy. I don’t hike all that often, and while it was lengthy for time spent on your feet, it certainly isn’t strenuous. I went the direction of Sunset to Cinderella (counterclockwise). This way had a lot of downhill toward the end which was slippery and no fun if you have bad knees. I recommend maybe going the other direction (clockwise). You may get a little more uphill workout but then it will chill out. A small window of views of the bay, but that’s it. Otherwise just a pretty trail. 85% shade. Went at 1:30pm on a Monday. Few families with dogs and a few bikers, nothing crazy. Enjoyed it overall!

This used to be a family favorite. The trail has been destroyed by heavy mountain bike use. Signs of trail erosion are evident with plants and shrubbery covered and suffocating under layers of trail dust. Prepare to cover your airway when bikes wiz past, kicking up clouds of dust.

Beautiful really well shaded trail. Lots of space for most of the hike on the trail. Got a little turned around but had fun finding our way back.

A great little trail for canyon views. The trail narrows in some places. Picnic tables at the trail head + restrooms. Limited parking. About 1 -1.5 hour depending on your speed and viewing activity.

Really cute trail, narrow in places since you're walled in by forest either side. Shaded and pretty. Excellent for families - our kids loved reading every sign! Quite a bit of poison oak on the lower trail, with some extending over into the path so be aware if you're as allergic as I am!

Great little hike

Nice and rather short, easy to add more miles to it

We loved the information plaques. One unidentifiable junction, but otherwise well sign posted and maintained. Family of five, blown away by the bay leaf forest. Great trail for kids.

best place to hike with dogs

It said easy so I wore normal shoes and slipped several times on steep rocky downhill areas. It’s also super dusty because of all the mountain bikes, so instead of looking at green foliage it’s all brown.

I'm rating this trail 1 star because it is definitely not an easy trail. If you're a novice you won't like this trail. Definitely a beautiful hike but this trail has 100s of mountain bikers on it. I had to move around 50 times out of the way of mountain bikers. There were areas on the trail only 2 feet wide where you have to make room for mountain bikes moving at 25 mph. This trail is not KID FRIENDLY like suggested above. Steep hills with unsafe conditions. I went with my sister and towards the end of the trail we saw a family approaching the trail and urged then to turn around. We warned them that it wasn't safe for kids. Out of control mountain bikers make this trail uncomfortable and nerve recking during tight quarters. It's a beautiful trail that should be dedicated to either hiking or mountain biking, not both. I'm not a rookie hiker. I've been on over 100 hikes from this all trails app

FYI it’s definitely not stroller friendly, although I agree it’s kid friendly

Easy and beautiful

Great labeling of the wild flowers.

Shaded beautiful trail.Worth it!!

This was a nice trail it is moderate and be prepared to go off trail for Cinderella Trail. It was quite a challenge finding Cinderella trail. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my son who went with me on this hike. There are lots of bikers so don’t bring little kids under the age of 5. Overall the trail was a workout which I enjoyed.

super easy if your just starting out fun path ways you can take all over the park

Covered throughout with lots of green. Educational signs about the plants are an added bonus (even if some may be outdated), not to mention that huckleberries throughout!

Beautiful hike however I missed the switchback and ended up going a bit further and ended up by a horse corral lol. There was a short bit after the horse corral where the trail was poorly maintained but thankfully I saw some more hikers making me feel a bit more at ease. Note to self, don’t do this part of the hike alone-or maybe I was just a bit paranoid? All in all, beautiful hike that ended up to be 3.7 miles that clocked in at about 1.5 hours.

Really cute- lush green, many feens & huge bay trees. Mostly shaded, easy.

Great trail with beautiful scenery

Beautiful scenery with some nice mild inclines to make it decent enough exercise for the day. We went on a Wednesday around 6:30 and there were only a few hikers and a couple of mountain bikers. Great views and easy parking. Highly recommend and would go again.

Dog park. On a clear day though you can have the best views of SF. Golden Gate Bridge, SF skyline, Bay Bridge.
