It is hard to find so don’t give up! Park on the street and make ur way to the trail GPS spot. You will see the post and know ur in the right spot. Enter to the left of a corner driveway.

The trail is pretty open. I missed a turn or two and took a longer path back to the start. It was good thou. Those trails are more covered and were more fun than an open path. All in all....pretty good.

good trail, mostly covered by trees which was a huge plus when hiking in summer. the trail has some character to it, mix of hard bush, open grassland, Rocky scrambles and some scenic outlooks. the view from top of cordorouy hills was great. overall it's a moderate climb with no section particularly straining you. started early at 7 and finished before 11. there are areas with cattle but mostly it's isolated. good number of local hikers too. overall I would look towards coming back sometime in winter

Simple straightforward trail hike and easily manageable. Had an 830am start and ended in time for lunch in downtown Danville. Beautiful view and weather was sunny 75F.

Overall, really fun hike with amazing vistas and cool landscape changes. Highly recommend going counter clockwise in the loop as there are some parts of the trail that require you to climb up/over some rocks. I would not want to climb down these parts. I think the rocky parts and some very narrow paths with a steep drop-off to one side warrant the 'hard' rating. The elevation change is intense but well spread out. The first 2 miles were the toughest for us, but the views after mille 3 were well worth it. We saw a deer, lots of quail, squirrels, cows, and a gopher snake. Near the rocks, my husband swears he heard a rattlesnake rattle but we didn't stick around to see it. We were cutting it close to sunset so we took a ~0.5 mile shortcut on the very last leg. Excited to come back and do the full loop.

Beautiful vistas!

Easy until you hit Corduroy Trail. I highly suggest to follow the route as written. I doubt that I would have gotten down the rocky parts and up the "stairs" as those were pretty tall. I was able to enjoy Corduroy Trail by going counter clockwise as the directions state. I enjoyed the trails very much, lots of views and the trails were in okay shape. It has enough shade up to the last part as you descend. Take lots of water. I saw more people than animals. A few cows, but they didn't bother me nor I them.

The trails are not marked as well as others that I've been on. I totally missed my turn for Ringtail Cat trail and ended up south of the Ringtail trail head and ended up on Camille. I had to walk down Camille, take the Iron Horse trail back to Hemme. There are a lot of unmarked single tracks and I had taken one up to the top when I first started out, but couldn't find it on the loop back. My fault, so it added a little bit more to the hike.

I would think this would be a very pretty trail after some rains to get the water in the creeks again.

Training for the Tahoe Rim Trail. Good workout with the packs. Nice views of the East Bay.

Great trail especially in the spring. Good winter hike. Not too many people in the off season. one of the tougher hikes in the bay and the hardest hike I ever got my wife to do...

Great hike. Good for medium or heavy cardio. Needs a little path clearing but still a great viewpoint

I started from the end point so your experience may differ from the other end. The first .6 miles was quite steep and a bit muddy, but was passable. About a mile and a half in there is a cow pasture. once you get in that area the grade and slippery trail combine to make it to dangerous for me to continue, so I went back. I went in April, so you may want to try it in a dryer time of the year. It was strikingly beautiful though.

Nice views of Mt. Diabolo. If you want to avoid the private roads to the trailhead you can do the trail in reverse, start at Elworthy Staging Area, Las Trampas Regional Wilderness https://goo.gl/maps/RfuuDdmQeuH2

getting to the trailhead is a joke - all the roads are private and gated! didn’t even get to do the hike since i was limited on time and couldn’t add an extra 10 miles of walk/run to the trip

Beautiful views. A few hills, but easy.

We hiked the loop in reverse starting at Madrone Trail and I think it was even better. Good challenging day hike for semi beginner hikers.

Nice hiking out there! It’s nice to see Fresh green hills.

nice people.lots of cows and cow pies. ran across a grumpy cow on the trail and he tries to charge me and my dog. we were fine. no issues

Very pleasant hike. It’s not too hard I would rate it as moderate.

It's like running on pillows right now

Used to hike here all the time. Beautiful scenery. Lots of trails.

It's a nice trail with a nice view! But be warned, there are some steep hills that you have to climb up! But it's definitely doable and after you finish that uphill, you'll be rewarded with a view :) Happy hiking!

could not get in, you have to make reservations

The start of the trail isn’t easy to find. It’s through a fence opening on right before you head up the private drive.

Really nice hike with the dogs. After steep start the hike around the O’Neill property had some great views and colors in the Fall.

Can’t believe this was only 3 miles! It took me an hour and I really enjoyed it. Great views, a nice steep ascent that made me feel I was getting a workout. Some parts are pretty narrow and could do with clearing but generally well marked. Nice shaded parts, pretty trees, crossed a dry creek.

Did the hike counter-clockwise. All uphill to Las Trampas Ridge on Chemise(pace yourself for enjoyment) watched the birds of prey soar up an up. The trail marker points for Las Tramps to the South, but you want to go North don't worry the trail is really North too. Take a detour and hike out to Eagle Peak(Zen and good views) on Corduroy Hill its down and up but only 0.4 miles out of the way round-trip. Take the Bollinger Loop trail off Las Trampas which is a single track, but looks much better than the big boring fire-road. On the last leg of the hike on Bollinger Creek Loop trail take the western side for more cover from the sun as you walk in and out through groves(note follow the warning post pointing you upwards or you will be walking on a washed out trail and have to take a mini leap of faith and climb over a fallen tree or two), expect cows on the last part of the trail.

One of Las Trampas easier hikes but even that is tougher than most hikes in the bay.....very enjoyable.
