I have a ny injury that I cannot do a lot of up and down hill walking. This place is great for me and the dogs.

Nice little flat walk with great water views.

You need to go to the Bull Valley staging area to access the loop. Once there you will double back the way you came on McEwen Rd. Follow the trail along the fence line until you come to a gate that you leads into the town of Port Costa. Not a bad hike.

Great trail, encountered someone with their dog off leash was not friendly with my dog. Also people need to pick up after their dogs as well. Well maintained trail though.

Most of the trail is on wide fire roads & out in the sun. The views are great but the hike to get to & from the ridge is STEEP. Plus, I found 4 ticks on my dogs once we got home.

Great views of Carquinez Strait and Grizzly Bay, decent mileage, and parts of the trail are actually moderate-hard, not just moderate.

Large hills... nice views
It was unfortunate though, 2 out of 3 of our dogs had ticks all over them.

Won't go again.

Easy hike with great views.

Easy short trail hike. I might wait until our rainy season goes away because it was still quite muddy. The grazing cows were cool! And the views are amazing!

although I didn't get to hike the entire trail because of the mud, I did love this park. it had lovely rolling hills a beautiful view of the bay and lots of birds. look forward to revisiting this place once it dries up a bit. The mud was just to much for me but my pooch loved it !

We hiked on the Franklin Ridge Loop Trail in the Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline in Martinez, CA.   We hiked over a mile along the shore over the Arch Bridge and past the Sunken Schooner in the Martinez Regional Shoreline. Then we walked up to Rankin Park where we will start hiking up the steep coastal hills to the Franklin Ridge Loop trail. It was a beautiful hike.
