    The temperature was only around 80F late morning in early July. When it was 104F degree on the Strip, it was an amazingly refreshing experience to hike this trail. Great view and well maintained.

    It is for the paved road running, not trail running. The loop is a perfect distance to train for a half Marathon. It is relatively flat, so I can maintain a very steady pace. The trail has enough barrier/room from the roads next to it, so the passing traffic doesn’t bother me, and there isn’t much car exhaust smell at all. I love it for a running trail (I probably wouldn’t enjoy it as much as a walking trail).

    Very fun trail, a lot to see, especially the hang gliders. Not strenuous, good for a walk in most weather.

    Overall nice trail for the good view and convenient/easy access. Definitely very good workout on the incline. Certain parts of the trail are too steep and slippery with loose dirt and rocks, so it may get unsafe if not wearing the right shoes. There were no signage along the trails and many many splits, making it a bit difficult to navigate without frequently checking the GPS on my phone.

    Charlene Zhou reviewed Seaview and Big Springs Trails Loop

    6 months ago

    Great view of the city and the Golden Gate Bridge. I started from the quarry trail head, but you can also start at the big spring trail head. From the quarry trail head, if you hike the loop clockwise, the beginning incline is steeper and you get to the vista point on the top ridge faster, but spend longer time going downhill. I prefer counterclockwise so as to have a steady incline and spend much longer time uphill than downhill. If going downhill via the Seaview trail (counterclockwise) is too steep and the impact on the knees is a concern, you can split off at the point where Lower Big Spring meets Seaview, and then turn back at the point where Lower Big Spring meets Quarry to get a much more gradual decline.

    Bucket list trail! Beautiful the whole way and challenging/strenuous at places.

    Charlene Zhou reviewed Glen Canyon to Twin Peaks

    6 months ago

    Very good work-out trail. You can get rather consistent incline all the way from Glen Canyon to the top of the twin peaks. The Glen Canyon portion is extremely pleasant now after the park renovation. Walking in the canyon, you forget that you are in the city, because you are surrounded by woods and don’t see paved roads/vehicles — that is one unique characteristic of Glen Canyon making it a better hike to me than other nearby hills such as Bernal height. Reaching the twin peaks is quite rewarding with The unobstructed view of downtown. The only unfavorable part on this trail is that you need to cross a big intersection with traffic light, and then cross back and forth on the vehicle road leading up to the twin peaks several times.

    Tranquil and scenic. Very well maintained trail and a lot of coverage of shades. It is a very comfortable hike even on a hot day. The 9 mile distance makes it a real work-out.

    Charlene Zhou reviewed Mori Point Loop Trail

    Part of the loop trail is right next to the road where cars zooming by, which makes the last 5 minutes of our hike unpleasant. Otherwise, good view, nice combination of terrain, and perfect distance for a quick hike.

    Great view. But it is a paved road, so lack the nature feel. Also, very limited parking.
