My husband and I hike here with our dog very often. It’s really close to where we live so it makes it easy. It’s so beautiful, great views! Most of it is slightly uphill so it’s a good workout

Awesome trail! :)

Starting on the Oak Tree Trail, nice wide packed dirt path steady incline leading all the way to the junction of the trails at the top of the hill. On the way down Woodland, very different scene with lots of trees and narrow single track with steeper decent. Views are great on either side. Would have given more stars except there were far too many people for my taste.

Great for kids and dogs!

Good exercise, good views.

Moderate but a Great View!!!

Make sure your iPhone has enough power or you will get lost!!

It's was definitely challenging with kids with all the uphills.. challenging but fun! Very dry and not good for allergies though :/

Good climbing and fun downhills. Single track not allowed which is too bad.

Steep hill to the top, but the view is worth it. Pretty easy once at the top except for the occasional hill. Great hike overall! Watch out for cow pies!

14.4 miles
It was quite a work out. A lot of up and down along the Ridge trail. It was a very beautiful hike especially along Shady Creek and Sinbad Creek. I also loved the Olive grove, it made me feel like I was in the Holy Land. Expansive views of Pleasanton, Livermore, Mt Diablo, Mission Peak, Sunol Ridge, Interstate 680.

Many wildflowers and some good hills. Nice hike.

this is by far one of the best day hikes as of yet... preparing for the Grand Canyon R2R hike

Nice trail in Pleasanton's backyard. Starts off with a bit of uphill climb which opens up on the ridge rewards with sweeping views.

So steep on both sides. That's it.

It was nice, not shaded most of the way. Got chilly at the top though. 6 miles roundtrip of moderate elevation.
