I run a shorter loop of this trail. It’s 5 miles and I love the way it flows. The view from the top is incredible.

Amazing wildlife! This particular loop is one of the more strenuous hikes at Rancho San Antonio, but it’s well worth the effort. Some of the trail sections are steep, but at no point is scrambling necessary. Pack lots of water and plan for between 6-7 hours to finish the trail if you aren’t a crazy speed-hiker. There is a nice bench at the top of the trail where you can enjoy views and a lunch.

Excellent trail for moderate hiking. Signs are a bit confusing so make sure to keep a close watch on the signs.

The trail was beautiful and it was nice for a Sabbath walk/hike. The hikes/walks are different from the hikes I like to do on any other day of the week. I actually slow down on Sabbath. It was my first time there, I will go back. The farm was a cute unexpected surprise on the walk. ☺
The advice I can give is, go early it was hard to find parking, it was full.

Just a pretty little stroll through the woods, easy and the farm is such a COOL place to take your kids, especially in the Spring. All the baby animals are out and they are so fun to watch. If you have kiddies, grab a pack and some snacks and take them here. Leave no trace, please!

parking is really bad. get there early!!

It’s a very beautiful hike. This hike has elevation change upto 2000ft. There might be wild life on the way to hike, turkeys , deer etc.

Might be a little tough on a hot day. Take plenty of water.

Sweet trail. You should go counterclockwise and definitely don’t skip going to the top of black mountain.

Very nice views and lot of trail options

The farm was the best part!

Beautiful walk

Relative flat trail to enjoy nature with deers roaming, woodpeckers chipping and wild turkeys!

Starting from the main parking lot it’s a fun 7.1 mile run. It begins with a mile of flat for warmup and then progress into a 2 1/2 mile climb to the top. Once at the top you have 3 miles of Technicial down hill through a mostly shade trail to deer hollow. And them finishing in the parking lot.

very nice at the first half, but less shady at the second half. The farm is interesting, but quiet stinky.

Fun casual hike with family. Our 2 year olds both did this hike many times with little whining.

This was a great hike! Not too strenuous until going up quarry trail. Felt a little afraid since we didn't run into anyone but the view is beautiful!

Solid hike - maybe 3.5 stars. Easy to find however really surprised how busy the hike was at 7am on a Sunday. Two different parking lots and still hard to find a spot. If you like to be alone in nature - skip this one. Elevation not hard - except between mile 3 and 4 but not steep just constant. Views on the first half of the hike are OK. Back end of the hike is much pretty. Ton of wild life and none of it runs away, hence all the people

Nice trail

Ran the 3.1 mile loop counterclockwise, and overlapped so that I made the farm my finish line. Great warm weather trail as it is mostly shaded with exposed area consisting of level or downhill terrain.

I loved this hike. Good mix of uphill/downhill with beautiful views and overall great workout.

Easy but fun, especially when the pigs are out and about

My favorite hiking running walking trail at Rancho. Ran this trail with a off-road jpg stroller for years. Walked it with my kids. Team with a running group. Hiked it alone or with friends. Beautiful. Great forest feel yet right in there city.

Sometimes there stream is running.

Always a great placed to be.
