I really enjoyed this hike. Starting off in a beautiful wooded area and then moving into an open hilly scene was lovely. Very dog and horse friendly; my canine might've enjoyed it more than we did. More than half of the hike was in direct sunlight, so bring extra sunscreen. Make sure you go off onto the side trail on the way back to get a great view of Mount Diablo!
Very nice trail that doesn't get that much use because of location and next to far more used Mount Diablo. Only did this one twice with a few friends. Again, like so many hikes in the bay area, you can combine it with others. The trails from here lead into Mount Diablo as well.
Did this path backwards and loved it. A little rutted in places where equestrian traffic is heavy, and more cow poop than dirt in other spots, but overall really nice. The Condor trail at the end adds a little challenge right when it gets repetitive. Quiet and lovely views.
