Really nice trail with great views. Lots of solitude even on a Sunday afternoon.

Nice trail, if you want to finish in the shade start on the clyma trail side, the last part has a slight climb but it’s in the shade.

Great trail. Coyote Trail in particular was very beautiful. Mossy. Lots of shade. Take plenty of water and stretch b/c there were frequent steep uphill parts along Valley View and Manzineta Trail. Took us a little over 4 hours to complete the trail including water breaks and a lunch break. Saw many cows, birds, and some lizards. Our dog also loved it! (Giving 4 stars b/c the many uphill climbs were very tough for us, but it's a nice trail!)

This hike was just straight up DIFFICULT. Raven loop is no joke but nevertheless it was totally worth it!

trail is about 60/40 exposed to shade start early. there were loads of deer and birds in the woods. no water and very dry. the campground was over grown and there was a very large spider in the out house. it us fenced and suitable for stock. great views of Mt Diablo all the way to Mt. Vaca in June you can probably see the Sierras on a clear winter day

Good trail. Seems to be lightly trafficked. Soaring views across greater East Bay.

Did this loop today with two others. All three of us are experienced hikers. We all feel “moderate” is misleading. It’s definitely on the hard end of moderate. There are some pretty tough sections. Valley view, especially downhill, is very steep and rough ground with loose rock. Manzanita is steep but not particularly difficult. But the Coyote Trail is a narrow, single track up out of the canyon. It’s steep and along the edge of steep drop offs. All said, the views are spectacular and the canyons are awesome. It’s a 5-star for me.

Morgan Territory is well maintained and the trails look like they have recently been widened to at least 6'. I took my favorite trails: Volvon>Blue Oak>Miwok>Manzanita>Hummingbird>Prarie Falcon>Condor trails for a challenging and lovely 5.9 mile loop. These trails are mostly exposed so if you're sensitive to heat and sun, I suggest an early start. I highly recommend the Prarie Falcon trail for amazing views!

Remind myself not to take this trail on the weekends. Too many bike riders having to side step for.

The first stretch of this hike is an interesting cycle between a few different habitats. Starting and ending in oak woodland with some foray through riparian areas. I find this stretch of the Condor trail preferable to the Volvon trail to access the eastern areas in Morgan Territory. The Prairie Falcon trail provides some nice views of the canyon, but I wouldn't recommend completing the loop back to the Volvon as prescribed in this hike. The rest of the Prairie Falcon loop is a narrow path through some scrub and chaparral and exposed boulders. Not as scenic. It's enough to go west on Prairie Falcon for just a few hundred yards from the Volvon to get the views. I'd recommend doing this and then doubling back to spend more time hiking on the Volvon.

Love this trail! So many options, some parts are shaded some parts don’t have any shade! Saw some cows, a snake, a gecko, and beautiful views.

Fun easy morning hike. A good portion is on a fire road so limited shade in those sections. Otherwise easy fun walk.

A little rocky in some spots but short and sweet. Perfect for little kids. Just keep an eye for snakes in grass.

Nice trail with many rolling hill climbs. Good workout! Quiet, low key but with a nice view at some spots. There are still some wild flowers along the way.

HikingOff trail

For some truly great views, you’ll need to go off-trail a bit but it’s totally worth it! Trails aren’t marked too well, so I relied on the app for directions. That’s the only reason why it’s not a 5 star to me. I am such a big fan of the remote feel however. There is so much to see on this trail, with hardly anyone on it. I only bumped into 2 people the entire time

This is one of the best paced trails in the east bay. No monstrously steep incline or declines, but still has enough consistent elevation gain/loss to keep your heart rate up. Something else that really stands out about this is the location. At any point of the trail, no man-made sounds can be heard (freeways, planes, trains, construction) which was very refreshing. I only saw 1 person on the trail the entire time. Lots of wildlife as well, a hawk with a snake in its clutches flew in front of me, and there were deer on a couple points of the trail. Lots of other trails to explore as well, definitely coming back soon.

Nice loop - giving it a three stars just because the first part is pretty ordinary although we liked the forgotten almond orchard. Best part is the Coyote trail near the end ( going clockwise) and the mossy rocks and dappled light. Also good to be finishing up, and hiking up, in the shade.

Beautiful expanses of green pastures coupled with groves of oak, manzanita and fragrant bay laurel. Grand vista of Mt. Diablo and the Delta from the northern end of this loop.

This was a very nice trail. It has some great views of the twin summits of Mt. Diablo and the neighboring Morgan Trail highlands. There are forayed sections and wide open space section, so a good variety. I did see a mountain lion from afar however so just keep your eyes open.
