Enjoyable hike but lots of horse crap. Watch your footing.

Lovely hike, saw a few dear. The suspended bridge over the wetlands was so pretty!

Shaded quiet trail if going out mid-day. Nice balance of incline and downhill. Watch out for horse poop.

Good to get out and hike post surgery. Dusty and dry. Some nice views.

Started at red tail and went opposite way.

Very wide open trail with some shaded areas on and off. It was relatively empty when we went save for a handful of mountain bikers passing by. Great hike and lots of connecting trails to keep it interesting

Nice trail and pretty quiet although there were a few mountain bikers. I’d recommend doing it counter-clockwise - there’s a lengthy uphill at the start but you avoid a pretty gruelling uphill that you’d encounter if you go the other way. We missed the final turn and ended up doing the Ten Hill trail but otherwise, it’s a pretty decent hike.

Wow, I was not expecting this to be as good as it was. Several types of landscapes; from hill crests to secret forests. I missed the Horseshoe trail switch over and had to double back. The horseshoe trail is connected to the equestrian center - don’t trust the little dotted black line on this one.

Steap in the beginning then leveling off for many miles. Moderate scenery. Went off trail after stopping at a post thinking we were headed in right direction realized 1/2 miles away and we decided to run parallel to the original trail on grass valley trail. Got off into housing area and walked skyline road to fire house then went up park ridge street to reconnect with trail. Probably added an extra mile to trail. I would recommend this trail and rate it 3.3

nice hike

My rating is for what the trail REALLY is versus what is advertised here. My fit bit said it was 7.39 miles. The All Trails app had it at just under 7 miles. I started the recording about 2 miles in. For this it should have been rated as moderate. As a moderate 7 mile trail, it’s great! I would do it again.

Mostly nice and shady. Only just touches the end of Lake Chabot, so pretty dry. A lot of ups and downs, but not the best views.

Willow View is probably the least trafficked trail in Chabot Park. The trail is well defined, but overgrown at parts. Be prepared to eat a few spiderwebs on your way up to Brandon. I grabbed a stick and held it out in front of me to clear out the webs and then it was smooth sailing on my way back down. I like that Willow View is a cool, shady alternative to going up Brandon from the golf course. It gets you off the beaten path. It also serves as a connector trail to those who are hiking the Bay Area ridge trail from Chabot to Garin.

Great hike. Very quiet for a holiday weekend. We never saw the lake though.

I recommend doing this specific route by mountain bike. It's really challenging with the hill climb and a blast on the way down to the stone bridge. The descent back down to the golf course will beat you up a bit though. I don't think this is a great trail for hiking. There are better options for hiking in Chabot park. My wife was hiking on this trail last week and crossed paths with a rattlesnake on the hill above the golf course, so please be careful out there. Pay attention to your surroundings and keep your dog on leash if you have one.

Nice trail, easier than we expected, so we added on another 3 miles around the lake. But the trail was nice and the birds were lovely!

I walked this trail with my boyfriend and another couple the second week of June. This was a nice trail for a group of people with a variety of hiking backgrounds. It took us around three hours but we had a break for lunch AND went the wrong way twice. It's not an incredibly well marked trail but if you have GPS you'll be fine. There wasn't cell service for any of us, which can be a nice way to "disconnect". The actual trail had a few sections of climbs - very reasonably graded. I would say half of the trail was shaded Some of it was yellow from the summer heat, but the portions along the creek were very green and lush. Logistically, there were extra spots available at the parking lot even though it was 11 AM on a Saturday. There were bathrooms and water at a stable halfway through the hike (where we stopped for lunch). Overall, a great "one size fits all" hike for a group of varied experience.

Great early morning hike. Uphill is manageable and the views are expansive and beautiful. The trail is shared with bikes and dogs which could be tricky later in the day. We missed the trail twice and added an extra mile to our planned hike so pay close attention. Definitely would do it again.

Pretty loop trail, part of it runs along Redwood Road which can be loud.

I recommend this trail. My wife and I brought our kids along with our dogs and had an amazing time. While there are signs about coyotes, dogs can be off leash if you are comfortable with them walking along side you.

A pretty trail with just enough elevation gain to make it burn a little bit. Large amount of mountain bikers on the weekend. Keep your eye out for the waterfall and pool in the winter/spring.

Not too hot. Plenty of shade, not difficult. A few horse riders, dogs, very friendly people on the trail.

Hiked this trail with my partner and pup. The views were super pretty, overall the hike was nice. I recommend going clockwise as the horseshoe trail is super steep and would be a pain to go up. The first half was super muddy, but the meadow views were well worth the trek.

I gave this trail two stars... It was pretty and the waterfall is lovely. But.... Thank goodness I went counter-clockwise and not clockwise. The steep part at the bottom was totally rutted and slick from recent rains and would have made a really rough climb. Also, the description said it was heavily travelled but on a beautiful sunny Friday afternoon it was dead empty. I passed not a single other hiker on the single-track trail along the creek. As a woman who hikes alone, I rely on the “heavily trafficked” description to make trail choices, looking for safer options.
