Amazing trail. Relatively empty. Trail in great condition. Nice for an after work hike while there’s still enough light! Make sure to get an EBMUD permit before starting!

Mostly wide fire roads, good for Covid distances. Very pleasant easy hike.

Challenging and fun! About 70% shaded. I loved seeing all the tall red wood trees thought out the trail. The trail was easy follow on the All Trails app. The trail was wide (10-15 ft) for most of the hike, which was good for physical distancing. People were very considerate and would put on their mask when walking by us. My new favorite hiking spot. It took me about 3h 15 min and I climbed a total of about 3,000 ft according tot he all trails app.

HikingGreat!

Great trail! It’s nice and wide, half shaded and half not. Pretty views of the water and wildlife. I recorded it as 6.6 miles and it took me 2 hours and 15 minutes.

This trail just kind of stops if you’re watching the red line. At one point it looked like you could go down to the lake, but EBMUD really doesn’t want you near the water. They have dragged big branches across the old trail and it’s overgrown with poison oak. Speaking of poison oak, it’s turning red right now and it’s easy to stay away from with the wide trails (fire roads). The weather was perfect at 10am with lots of water foul on the lake!

O M G We thought going up the big hill first would make it a nice easy walk back around by the water - but no! It just keeps going up and down all the way back to where the split was. This should be labeled HARD.

It was nice, you need a permit you can buy online. I have my own reservations on governments encroaching on our lands for fees. Anyways, it was a nice ride, did the whole loop took a few hours, I was ready to go get plastered at a brewery after

We had a great time. Very leisurely until the hill at the end. steep but doable. It's only about a mile straight up. Also, the overgrown grass people speak of is off the trail so either they did some maintenance or its been walked enough to be cleared on the trail.

One of my favorite trails. It needs EBMUD permit. If you want to do the full trail go uphill first clockwise so you get the shaded area later. If you do not want to do the full loop (i recorded 7.4 miles!) go counter clock wise, walk as much as you want and come back so The water will be near you and shaded. more fun spring time when the creeks are full.

The trail starts off with shady a narrow. You start to incline gradually; there aren't steep inclines on this trail. The views are spectacular and the trails are beautiful. You get about 60/40 sun/shade. The reservoir is a pretty sky blue and there aren't many people which makes it a serene hike.

You’ll need to purchase a permit online before going for this one and register yourself on the paper sheets at the beginning of Oursan Trail. Perfect for training. Quite a few ups and downs which make it a bit strenuous. A lot of wind in some places which made the overall experience rather cool (even though very exposed in a big part of the trail). We saw a rattlesnake crossing the trail, a coyote hunting, bunnies foraging, lizards, blue jays. There are a few benches once you cross the dam but that’s it. Very few people too. The second part of the hike after the dam is, for most of it, a single; only space for one person. I’m grateful for that experience we had there and I recommend it!

7/19/2020 hike / trail run: Picked a good morning to do this one as there was some fog spilling over from Tilden that gave me some cover on the unshaded Inspiration trail. This is a great trail for socially distancing during the pandemic as I only passed 3 people over the course of 10 miles.

Great views and tranquil. Good for beginners looking to challenge themselves. Lots of shade if you decide to go on a hot summer afternoon. I like the spooky sounds from the wildlife in the area.
