Great walk. The ridge line was fantastic. Took us about 2 hours at a nice clip.

Good work out! Variety of views with wild flowers, stream, and fossil rocks.

The views are amazing from Devils Hole trail. Sycamore trail is narrow, with lots of brush infringing. Strongly recommended long pants and long sleeves. Also, plenty of poison oak.

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

a great hike with excellent views. We picked a nice cool day with white clouds for a backdrop. Will definitely hike again!

Beautiful views. A few hills, but easy.

Just hiked it today 8 Miles 1900 ft elevation. Today’s hike Rocky Ridge and Rocky Ridge View out and Back . With an add on towards St Mary’s. Great place to hike especially in the winter drys out fast especially the service road up Rocky Ridge. Been hiking this area for 40 Years

Staging lot to the gate up the hill is a tuff climb, 1 mile. Once at gate, Ridge Trail and Cuesta Trail off to left whines further up hill. Once on ridge beautiful view of San Francisco to west, Mt Diablo to east, Concord and river in back ground to the north, and then Tri-Valley off in distance to the south. Was pretty windy up their but in Feb. clear day and hills all green.

Steep incline to start for roughly a mile but evens out near the top. Beautiful view of Diablo and lots of bird sightings. Mind the cows

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

What a great day for a hike with my pup! only reason it is getting a 4 star is because of the mud slides that took out about 10 yards of the trail but they have a path around it! it is partially paved and part dirt/rock

Great trail. Couple of things to note: cows (to avoid) in parts of the trail; very strong winds sometimes in top. Not for beginners.

Great reward for the hike up - amazing views

This is a great hike. After the rain it was extremely slippery and we all 4 slipped and fell in the mud, it was so much fun but we averaged 2 hours. Should be a lot shorter in dry conditions.

Beautiful hike. A few steep inclines.

Beautiful views from the summit. Be careful not to take Cuesta trail cutoff and no bueno in winter. Massive mud track.

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

This was a great hike for our dogs. In the beginning you do a fairly strenuous upward hike for the first 1.5 miles. You are on a service road in the beginning. Once you hit the top it is all downward for the last 4.5 miles. Hard to get lost and don’t need a lot of preparation. There is little protection from the sun or wind as you hike the middle portion as it is on the ridge. One may want to bring a windbreaker if you tend to get cold. The last mile was in a groove of trees so was fairly protected from the sun. We brought our 2 dogs and they had a good workout. They chased the cows for a bit so be aware that there are live stocks if you walk your dogs off lease. It was a cool day for our hike so didn’t need a lot of water. Bring a little snack if you tend to get hungry.

I ran this one. Beautiful views, very challenging, especially when you get to the Corduroy Hills Trail. This is for someone who is looking for a challenge and is not for the faint hearted.

Wonderful experience. One among the easier hikes I would say, nonetheless the views are amazing. No mud when we hiked today - seeing the trail it’s very clear why people have complained so - a drizzle and it could all turn muddy in no time.

Highly recommended - if it hasn’t rained recently.

Beautiful and a bit hard but totally worth!

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

Beautiful hike
