Enjoyable. Not super challenging. Went w Cece. Company was amazing, trail was lovely, but nothing particularly special. Occasions views were green and blue in the winter rains good. Frankly really difficult to identify where the trail was sometimes, so being a phone that will have service to track. AllTrails was helpful.

This hike is great fun! I went with my four children (8, 6, 3 walking & 1-carried). the view on the way back down the hill was beautiful, the cave was neat and it wasn't to difficult for kiddos. The cool thing about this park is that you're walk can be as short or as long as you'd like. we used this app to navigate the trails.

Awesome trail with amazing views.

Nice place to smoke a joint. Also there is a sweet swing about halfway up in the grove of trees on the left

Beautiful hike for the whole family to enjoy.

Great day of hiking. It will pop your cork.

It is challenging, but stunning. You get beautiful woodland as well as gorgeous hill top views. Wear good footwear, bring lunch and plenty of water and stop to enjoy the amazing beauty.

Great moderate workout!

I love this trail! I’ve been down it several times with a mountain bike and onfoot. Great views, nice distance for a good work out, you could bring a snack or some water in the light as it takes 2.5 hrs at a good clip. The distance on this seem to be off base of my apple series 4 watch with GPS. I will attach a screenshot of my route.

Beautiful hike through old growth bay and oak forests. Beautiful vistas throughout of distant hills and farmland. The hike is a beautiful habitat full of birds including Acorn Woodpeckers, hawks, And Nuthatches. A wonderful place to spend time in nature.

oooooweeee...this is a burner and the uphill is steep. Definitely was a challenge for me physically and mentally. I would say that I am in moderate shape and I have to admit I will be doing this one again one of these days just not any time soon. I think I need to build up my endurance and uphill hiking capabilities. I'm sure there were great views...I just didn't see any since I was focusing on putting one foot in front of the other and getting through it...hahaha

beautiful up hill the whole way.

Great hike for all ages. Amazing falls all the way up.

it was a beautiful hike, next time we'll make it all the way, we only hiked halfway because we were out of shape lol it is steep all the way up

Pretty hike. Very steep! Beautiful waterfalls almost the entire way up. We stopped at the picnic grounds - someone told us there isn't much to see beyond there.

I completed this hike today after failing to find the turn for the loop last weekend. I don't hike staring at my phone, and following the signs on the trail, I eventually ended up on a paved road and turned around to make it an out-and-back hike on my first try. The path for the turn is very small, narrow, and rocky, and near Arroyo Trail. Navigational faux pas aside, this is a nice 2-hour outdoor workout. The inclines are steady rather than overwhelming, and the rocky path is a great contrast to a gym environment. I like the benches and views of the Bay and SF, the easy parking (I like arriving around 9am though!), and the reliable outdoor toilets near the trailhead. Good times!

We did this loop as a trail run/hike counterclockwise. Walking up the steep paved road to start was good since running down that grade at the end would have been challenging, especially for my knees. The views at the top are spectacular! The rocky ridge portion of the trail had a decent amount of people on a sunny Sunday. If I did it again I would have cut out the sycamore portion. It started out great but a majority of the trail was overgrown bushes. I though for sure I’d have some sort of rash at the end of that portion. The devils hole trail was great. The way we went, it consisted mainly a uphill hike, but with great views. My all trails log said 6.6 miles and it took us 2.5 hours. I clearly was walking slow up these hills ;) to run it again, I may have just stayed up on the ridge and did more back and forth, but doing the full loop was defiantly a killer cardio workout.

Very clean and comfortable place to hike and get in the water to play!

My 7yo and I had a great time! Even with so many people on the trail it was peaceful and quiet. Lots of dogs on the trail and folks were great about keeping them on leash. Was surprised to not see many birds/animals/insects. The picnic area near the end of the trail is a great place to stop for lunch and refuel for the rest of the hike. Even on a cold day, we stayed warm with all the climbing. Worth the drive to get there.

Beautiful trail, but if you have any knee issues this might not be the trail for you. There are a lot of very steep steps.

beautiful trail! recommend getting there early for parking. only downside was that the trail was very slippery, and with the ups and downs, that made it a bit scary.

Attempted to do this on 12/28/18. The last road was completely covered in snow, so I had to trek in about two miles on completely untouched snow. About 100 feet after reaching the trailhead, I heard a very quiet growl. I stopped and listened and heard the growling get louder and louder until I could see a good sized mountain lion to my right. I remained calm and stared at the cougar, but it kept getting closer so I ended up screaming at it and it stopped. I slowly backed away and headed down the trail. I suggest hiking in groups in order to avoid a scary situation like this.

Nice length. Easy (at least for me) to go the wrong way and get lost. The whole loop is spotted with steep downhills and uphills—it’s almost like interval cardio training. Beautiful, beautiful views of the bay, both bridges, and the city.

We did this hike the week before Thanksgiving and it was awesome! Beautiful lakes and golden hills. When we finished we actually wished there were a couple more miles because it was that much fun!

did this trail over the summer, everything was dried up. So summer time is not the time to go! would bet spring time would be best!

Unexpectedly great views and a wonderful workout.

Great hike for a quick workout that doesn’t leave you exhausted. The views and mixture of shade and sun are nice as well. Trail is well marked, but very rocky and rutted in some parts.

Very serene park in Auburn with multiple trail options. The scenery is beautiful and you can hear the sound of water flowing for most of the hikes. The hidden falls outlook is a great spot to enjoy the waterfall but walking past it and going down the steps to be by the water is the best part. The blue and red hues of the rocks makes you really appreciate the geological aspect of this park. The trail is generally moderately trafficked and you’ll see a few bikers as well as horses. Be sure to make an online parking reservation if you go on the weekend.
