Great trail for intermediate mountain biking. A few tough spots but well worth the ride to Berry Creek falls. Saw plenty of friendly hikers and a few other bikers.

It was a moderate hike with beautiful panoramic views all along way. Almost entire path is shaded unless it’s midday.

Hike was better than I expected. Even though it is not a rain season, still pretty good waterfalls. Curiously my GPS showed roundtrip to be just under 15 miles. Not sure how to account for discrepancy.

Despite many warnings and being advised not too, I hiked this trail for my first time hiking ever. I do not recommend it as it is extremely difficult and in some spots maybe alittle dangerous but I made it, it was well worth loosing the ability to move the next few days and I completed it in about 8 hours!

Resumed hiking after 2 years with this one. We also followed counter clockwise. About 4 hours we completed with few stops. It was difficult but I was able to complete. falls, birds, redwoods and you will enjoy.

great hike!

Nice gradual incline to the top with a great view of the bay especially on a clear day. Saw a rattlesnake near the bottom so be careful. Make sure you get there before 830am so you can get a parking spot. Small parking if you wanted to do the incline first but if you want to go downhill first then you can drive to the top which had more parking.

A bit tough. I’d take everyone’s advice and do counterclockwise, we unfortunately did the opposite per the rangers suggestion and we only saw one other couple doing it this way. Much easier doing it counterclockwise and I know why now. Beautiful place and waterfalls are amazing to see.

Well maintained, shaded trail for 85%.
Vegetation not as gorgeous like you find in forests but still nice, different.
Pretty decent ascent not hard at all.

Well maintained paths and spectacular views of South Bay. Parking is tough so go early.

Nice and challenging hike, with great views. The heat was brutal even though I left early and hiked up in the shade.

Amazing views at the top.

Nice hike. Shaded all the way. One thing i don’t like is that it opens late; it says open and closes at sunrise and sunset, so you won’t be able to go there to see the sunrise. Bummer!

Great hike with amazing views of the bay, Diablo and beyond. Uphill and downhill struggle pretty much the whole way! It took us 7.5 hours to do (moving time). This is much longer hiking time for us as the downhill is steep fairly frequently with poor grip. If you can stand the burn and blisters it’s definitely worth it!

Tough for a beginner, all uphill, but a great trail!

This is now one of my favorite hikes, the views on the way up are incredible, the hike itself isn’t that difficult other than rocks the entire trip. Very very private, only a few cyclists passed me near the top.
Parking is a bit sketchy, the start of the trail is a bit steep so don’t get discouraged, the steepness ends quickly.
If you like peaceful hiking this is the one for you
There are a few shortcuts trails near the top, I definitely don’t advise you to take them, I tried and got cut up by brush and slipped on my back side

This is a fairly straightforward hike. The trail is well maintained and not too heavily trafficked, especially early in the morning (i.e. 7am). The ascent is very gradual to the top and not strenuous with the exception of a few sets of stairs to reach the summit. The summit gives some great views of the surrounding area and some information on the history of the area.

Overall, this is a good hike that can be done fairly quickly and offers some good views.

It was a well maintained, shaded trail. There were a couple of really nice scenic view points...and deer! Caught glimpse of a creepy, rusted wrecked car on the way back...did someone drive off the main road and roll down the cliff?? I wish the building at the summit was open to wander around in...but overall a good hike!

Bring water and look out for banana slugs! Great hike.

Always great views and amazing talks

Started early and by the time we reached it was around 7:15 am and cold. Very few cars were parked due to the cold I guess. Found initially little confusing where the trail started and took us some time to get on the trail. As per the review I read by lots of hikers we wanted to do the anti clock wise hike but came across a detour sign asking us the go on the clock wise direction. We ended up doing that and did not encounter any one until we reached the falls and decided to try the other side to get back to the parking when saw few people coming from the counter clockwise side of the trail. There was no issue with the trail not sure why they had put a detour sign. Took 5 1/2 hrs for us to finish the trail.

So gorgeous! Tough hike but a good one!

I took the advice here and went early, parking lot at 8 and also took the trail counter clockwise
I only saw three peoples going down and lots of birds! At the falls it began to seem like a freeway but still very beautiful and cool on a hot day.
Took me a little over 4 1/2 hours - I’m older and moderately fit.
Would totally recommend this hike.
Also bring $10 cash if you get there before the park opens to pay for parking - I didn’t have change so then for $20 from me.

Strenuous but great! Really beautiful waterfalls

Very nice trail, shaded most of the way. Elevation gain is graduate and not too steep. Beautiful recreation spots at the top: picnic tables with lots of shade, placards to teach about the place, the Indian tribes who lived here (and still have ceremonies here) and the history, beautiful overlook, even a restroom at the top (also at the beginning). took us 4 hours with lots of stops and breaks.

It’s definitely a better workout than most other moderate hikes on this app. It’s a lot of hills up and down with great views of the city, lush trees and a good of rhythm to elevation and walking down. Don’t believe there are any bathrooms (keep in mind). Most of it is not shaded and it gets pretty warm. The areas on the way down are somewhat challenging as it’s just the right angle/ enough rocks and pebbles to make it hard to walk/ easy to fall. But beautiful and good workout :)

Fun & challenging mt. Bike ride from Hicks parking lot. About 1.5 mi. Of very steep section in the middle. The last 3.5 miles are very nice.
