Beautiful hike. Found 12 ticks so far between 2 people and a dog. Make sure you take precautions.

Nice combination hike of chaparral, meadow, redwood forest, cool rock standings and lime kiln are awesome looking! Tiny little creek is lovely and really just put a big smile of my face although it was pretty heavily trafficked we went on spring box trail and cut off a lot of people viewing which I like :)

Full of homeless encampments. Don’t be fooled by the beautifully manicured entrance. After hiking in for 10 minutes, I found one after one examples of disgusting, needle laden, plastic trash ridden areas right on the trail. Horrifying and a shame.

I would not recommend this trail. It goes along a bunch of homeless camps and mainly used by bike riders. I would take the bike less trails and stay off any little side trails. They more than likely lead you to homeless camps. Pogonip used to be better but now it’s full of homeless in every nook and cranny of the park!

Nice trail but bits of trash scattered here and there two different kinds of Forest

Nice trail. The trail head is not marked correct in the app. It is from the park. But apart from that pretty nice.

Impossible to follow trail through out. Ended up at homeless encampments off trail.

I would call this a biking trail. If you prefer quiet hiking, I’d go elsewhere.

Destination: Koi Pond was a failed mission until we came across this hidden gem of a labyrinth to set some zen after some confused driving to find the trailhead. Not too bad but not what we were fully hoping.

Some confusing parts but great trail one of my new favorite

Really great trail, just be prepared for a lot of steep hiking!

This trail does not allow dogs. We drove out and realized this once we arrived. If you are looking for a dog friendly trail, do not come here.

Trail was great. A lot of trash and homeless shelters. A lot of mountain biking traffic on a Sunday afternoon made it less pleasant to hike with dogs.

A tree fell down blocking the trail today.

Great for someone who wants to hike and also have a long stretch of flat land to run (spring trail). Also, the history the land comes with!! Lime Kilns.

Nice hike, trailhead starts up at top of Harvey west park, by lunch tables and trash cans.

I took this trail in late March. A big chunk of the trail was passing through canyons where beautiful red trees were abundant. You should watch your steps for cute banana slugs which are hard to miss. Trail marks were confusing at some places, but who cares when you have AllTrails on your cellphone!

gradual grade through redwood forest with some open sections passing through grassy fields. A few nice views in spots up higher.

With the new construction it is easiest to start at the Harvey West Trail head down the street at Harvey West Park.

Great trail run or run/walk. 650-700ft elevation gain over just under 5 miles keeps it interesting but not too strenous. Some steep climbs that had me winded but mostly rolling ups and downs, on a well maintained trail. trail travels through man different ecosystems/microclimates from golden grassy fields, to oak forest, redwood, and riparian. Easy access from Harvey West if you are coming from the Eastside.

Great trail. Lots of tree coverage. Good amount of bikers.

Very nice hike. Not too heavily trafficked.

French trail is one of my favorites in the Bay. Not particularly hard, but it's SO beautiful, largely covered in green canopy and breath taking the entire time. Big thumbs up on any iteration of this hike.

Beautiful just after the rain! Make sure to check the map to follow the right trails; signs can be a bit unclear

I like this place a lot for what it is. Obviously is and feels heavily trodden, has a lot of human history, but it’s a great green space to escape to in the heart of town, and it is undeniably beautiful with it’s mix of riparian habitats, open prairie, coastal chaparral, and second growth coastal redwood. As SC has a heavy mtn biking culture, every trail has specific designations for whether it can be utilized by bikers, hikers, dog walkers, and equestrians. Lookout Trail is NOT dog friendly, and if you are doing this loop as it is done in the title with a pooch, you will have to turn north on the western edge of the large prairie after Fern Trail onto BrayshawTrail to connect back to Spring trail. At the risk of a $70 ticket, and staying on trails which forbade bikers, I let my well-behaved dog off leash for the whole loop. I parked on Golf Club Dr., picked up a map, and took Lower Meadow Trail to the club house; then Brayshaw up to Spring Trail. You can also cut through the prairie for a wonderful open feeling. My dog had a friendly off leash encounter with a confident coyote on the way back at sunset in the middle of the big prairie; this was fun and exciting for the both of us, but dog owners/parents of young children beware, there is a large, active, and fearless coyote population here.
