Wear shoes with traction. There is a lot of dirt in a few parts where your whole foot can be swallowed by dirt. Nevertheless, awesome views and trail! Will be back with friends!

Nice trail wear pants , there is some shady parts but towards the end it's sunny love this trail since it's close to home make sure you check out the tikis!

I hiked this a couple times last fall. The initial hike to the top of the hill on Grand is tiring but quick, but the rest of the Magnolia Trail portion is pretty easy. When the trail enters Buzzard Peak Road it becomes a bit harder as it's a steady incline until you're carving the side of Buzzard Peak, but then a pretty smooth hike as you ride on top of the San Jose Hills. Also the views are amazing at this part.
