Hard. About a good 800ft elevation gain within the first .7 miles. Gorgeous view of the Bay Area. Wear trekking boots as the path is steep and slippery.

This hike was a great sequence of microclimates and excellent views of the East Bay. I will definitely be adding it to my list of regular hikes. The exposed section near Dwight tests your footing, so watch out there.

Amazing hike! Sun to shade ratio is PREFECT!! Our dog loves every minute!
