Do it counter clockwise. Fair bit of poison oak, but you can avoid it. Steep uphill on Dewie's bday.

Started this trail at 9:02am on a Friday morning and finished at 12:19pm. So I totaled 3 hours and 17 minutes although I did stop a couple times to catch my breath. I did this trail in the counterclockwise direction. About half a mile in, as I was making my way up the roughly 900ft incline, I saw an animal jump into the tree/shrubs. I was only to see the leg of the animal, so I am not sure it was a deer, coyote, or mountain lion but I was not brave enough to find out. I continued my way up. Once you hit the top part about a mile in, you’re rewarded with great views on both sides of the hill. You walk alongside the peak of the mountain for about another mile before you decline about 900ft. This incline was my least favorite part of the trail as there were a ton of shrub and overgrown onto the very narrow trail. I was wearing shorts so it kept grazing against my legs and it was not fun. Additionally, the decline is steep and while I had running shoes they’re quite worn out and I kept slipping. I was already a bit paranoid from seeing the animal previously and I was hiking alone I kept singing/talking out loud. Once you hit the decline, you come right back up for about another 900-1000 feet. In honestly, it’s a great trail/park but I do not recommend it in the summer as it’s hot and there’s no shade. Might be better in the spring and fall with plants blossoming.

It’s only overgrown in certain areas but still accessible! Just watch where you are around poison oak and you’ll be fine. This is my new favorite trail!! I start off going to the right and climbing up up up! Once you get to the little ridge and keep going up there are beautiful views of the canyon. And it’s rocky and arid, just one of the many terrains you’ll hike thru. Then when you make it to the beautiful gnarled tree the golden hills with giant oaks provide partial shade. Once you get inside the canyon it’s easy and calming with plenty of shade (and sometimes cows!) I also saw a wild boar with her two little piglets!! The only downside is once you go up you gotta get back down, and my knees HATE hiking down. But hey that’s everytrail.

This is one of my go-to workout hikes. I usually add the Bollinger Loop trail at the beginning, then turn right into the West Ridge Trail before connecting to Corduroy Hills. Lots of ups and downs as you cross multiple ridges coming and going, with lovely variation in the landscape. It gets really hot in the summer, so best to have at least 3 litres of water that time of year. Nice mix of sun and shade throughout . Las Trampas seems to fly under the radar of most people, so traffic is usually light. This is a great substitution for leg day.

Very steep hike going into the first mile, easy hike throughout the rest of the trail. Disappointed that I didn’t get to see many wildflowers or wildlife besides the cows we passed by inn the beginning but that sort of my fault for not coming in the spring. Nether the less decent workout. It’s dog friendly and also saw a few parents bringing their kids

Great trail. Hard hike up and steep on the way down. Trail is a bit hard to follow and overgrown so requires hiking boots. Don’t do this in regular shoes or with kids.

Walking

This trail is a favorite of mine and my elementary school-aged kids. If you do the loop counterclockwise, you’ll start along the creek. When there is water in the creek, hopping rocks to get over the water when the trail crosses it makes for a fun adventure. There is also a steep but fun segment which can be slippery in the dirt and challenging without the trail/hiking shoes (though it’s probably my favorite part). Great views at the top with options of making the route longer. Cows, scenic descents. All-in-all, a great one for anyone on a quest for a little adventure.

Be careful- this trail is really just tough in terms of the loose dirt. Also do yourself a favor and keep an eye on the map- went there wrong way twice. Solid hike that will clear your lungs. I would NOT recommend doing this in the heat. Lack of shade for a lot of the trip

Great trail, strenuous but not overly difficult even though it seemed mostly uphill. Scenic, excellent birding and even saw a wild pig with piglets.

Hiking

Chamise is less trafficked, a narrow path, and ascends over 600' in less than a mile. Pretty challenging but so worth it. Great views of Mt. Diablo, shady, and it smells great! It's named after the Chamise shrub covering this hill. There is also coyote mint, clarkia, and sticky monkey flower still blooming in late June. Once you hit Bollinger Creek loop, there is just a little more of a climb but it's shady. Then the descent is exposed with wide trails and a little more crowded.

Great trail, parking was pretty easy to find. It definitely is on the harder side if you go around the entire loop , very steep incline and climbing

An incredible trail with a spectacular forest and astonishing views. Very hard to complete, be prepared with lots of fluids. Worth the challenge.

Starts on a meandering riverbed for the first 1/2. Then it’s a slippery up for another third. I’d recommend doing this up vs. the opposite way down (too steep). The finish is a fire road trail down. Lost of shade, but the big up is something to be prepared for. Bring hiking sticks!

We went from Hemne entrance (big fat rattler resting just off trail just after second gate) then up Dewies to Madrone. It was a bit of a scramble up Dewies but glad we did it that way. The point of no return trail-not labeled that we could find and although we were on it for awhile per my AllTrails app, we eventually gave up and came all the way back to Madrone and down Ringtail. Lots of poison oak in various parts of this hike, Madrone had a fair amount of traffic (no one on Dewies).

Nice trail - from the parking lot you go through the gate to the right of the bathrooms. Right after the gate you'll see a little post - Bollinger Creek is to the right and Rocky Ridge is straight ahead. It's a decent grade uphill on a paved surface. Saw someone every 15-20 minutes. There aren't any flat areas but the trail is wide enough to take a break when needed and has a little shade at the beginning before losing it. Keep on going and at a certain point you'll see a dirt path going uphill towards the top - another 10 minutes and you're nearly at the ridge. Enjoy the view! It's worth walking along the ridge, at least to where the Cuesta trail juts off to the left and downhill. By then you can see the bay, dumbarton bridge beyond coyote hills, and eventually san francisco downtown. You can also see windmilss in the distance near the delta and the refinery in Richmond. Sidenote on when you reach the Cuesta trail jutting off to the left downhill. At this point you should decide if you want to keep going straight and make a loop or turn around. We made the mistake of taking Cuesta and weren't prepared for it. It's definitely do-able but not signed or maintained well and you get a lot of up and down, low branches, some scrambles and up close to the cows. Lots of prickly stuff as well. Downhill is the usual deal. Most people carried masks, some wore them, at least while passing by, but it wasn't crowded at all.

The All Trail trail description and map are out of sync. The description is for the counterclockwise route while the map and elevation profile is for clockwise. We went clockwise and enjoyed it. Particularly liked the Sycamore Trail stretch - felt we were the only people on it. It’s narrow, steeply uphill and overgrown ( including poison oak) but that’s why it’s not a monotonous plod.
