Nice hike, fun even for us beginners. Awesome view when you get to the top.

Trail was ok, not overly scenic. There is a rocky area that is nice. Lots of squirrels and large black beetle bugs crawling around. Was hoping to see a hawk or other large birds but only saw crows. Most of the trail was in the sun.

nice valley and lake views.

nice trail with 1k elevation.

Perfect place for a morning hike after a long break.

My go to local hike. Good elevation climb, not too agressive. There are several loops so you can tailor your hike to your needs. Maps are available at kiosk. Free parking/entry. Dog friendly. Cattle grazing in winter until early summer. Winter can be muddy and summer gets hot, plan accordingly.

Such beautiful views of Livermore and a great workout! Takes about an hour and a half all the way around, although I had a baby on my back and am pregnant, so I am sure many of you could do it faster than me.

Free parking and a great mix of hills and rocky paths and flatter parts as well.
