I loved this! Though I will admit that the park signs here are a bit confusing on which trail is which, particularly with the Upper Seafoam Trail and the Lower Seafoam Trail.

It’s a nice and peaceful trail. Good for hikers and horses. Great view of the San Pablo reservoir. Not particularly hard but does have a few steep parts.

This is my favorite little hike. The incline really gets the heart going, but once you get to the magical bench, you can really rest and take it all in. After that it's pretty much downhill through a nice quiet forest section.

Did this lovely trail with my baby in a backpack and my two dogs. Nice incline that makes for a perfect little workout. Beautiful views of the reservoir and a shady wooded path the second half of the trail. You will likely have the trail to yourself most of the time. Dogs are actually allowed off leash.

Great short hike took my 3 year old and 12 year old there’s a bench with a great view to take a short water snack break.

This was pretty fun. The walk up is pretty steep and strenuous, but once you get to the highest point it's all easy from there. It may be a little hard for kids, with the steep hills. I wish once you got to the top there was more trails to see more of the dam, but it is better than nothing. We had a great time. seen some small lizards and thankfully no rattlesnakes, although there are many signs for them.

I started on the Kennedy Creek Trail, continued onto the Black Oak Trail loop, on the way back I climbed the Upper Seafoam Trail and went down on the Lower Seafoam Trail and then I took the Laurel Loop Trail. For a total distance of 3.3 miles with elevation of 833 feet. It was short but intense. There was few muddy spots on the trails. It was a good workout and some scenery on the top with the view of the San Pablo Reservoir. At this time of year the parking was free. From April to October there is a parking fee for $5.

Nice little trail that I enjoyed doing a long time ago. I forgot finding it until I came across it here. Found it exploring on the motorcycle.

Nice mix of shade and sunny spots on the trail. Scenic views once you get up the hill. Fun hike to bring your dog on but watch out for the poison oak.

Perfect amount of distance and pitch. Don't know if I'd call this "easy." You'll work up a sweat on the way up. Nice greenery, flowers and a view of the reservoir.

For increased distance and challenge I started the Laurel Loop Trail from the Bay Area Ridge Trail; then onto the Kennedy Creek Trail, the Upper Sea Foam Trail, and then headed back to the Laurel Loop Trail. The view to the San Pablo Reservoir was breathtaking.
