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.

This was my first hike after 7 years break. I could able to complete the hike. Nice scenic view in between the hike . Definitely will go again..

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.

An amazing trail, but not recommended for new hikers based on the elevation gain. Make sure you hike all the way up and take a left on Montebello Road to get to the rocky area. Enjoy :)

Very good hike heights, love it

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!

The PGE trail is a service road, not a trail, so be prepared for steep, exposed, and not real fun, but some good views. The high meadow trail is beautiful, definitely will do again. This loop is hot and exposed, bring plenty of water. Was so disappointed to see lots of food litter on the trail. Leave no trace, please!!

The Black Mountain peak was closed - thank you Mr and Mrs Lions - but it was still a great outdoors to take Rhus Ridge to Black Mountain Trail to Rogue Valley Trail all the way to San Antonio and back. About 12 miles out and back with small amount of elevation change leading to under 20 minute pace (and walk by Deer Hollow Park). Start early.

parking is really bad. get there early!!

Nice moderate hike with lots of interesting wild flowers along the way. Scenic view of the valley. The Deer Hollow Farm at the end was a nice touch with all the baby goats and sheeps. Overall, great hike for family!

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

Excellent hike, to the top of Black Mountain about 12 miles..steep at some points, very good workout to get ur endurance up...well worth it to reach the top, the view is amazing.

I love this trail — especially the animals, including my hiking buddy.

Very nice views and lot of trail options

I'm visiting from WA, and decided to check out this trail today.

Trail is super well-maintained, and there are pretty cool views of Silicon Valley and Black Mountain (and some surrounding ridges) along the way. The end of Black Mountain Trail (a radio tower) doesn't have amazing views, but it's a great hike overall. The hike itself starts out a bit steep, but becomes a gradual climb and is quite steady in its climb until the very end, where it's steep again.

Made it to the top in about 1:45. I didn't drive there (took a Lyft), but the parking lot was completely full by the time I descended.

Decent hike but it was quite dry when I did it and not much shade. Only went out and back on PG&E and turned back at the peak. Pretty tough hike with a 6 month old.

The farm was the best part!

Beautiful walk

Trail is good and lot of people will be hiking during weekends. I have been to this place twice and it’s worth to hike.

new years day hike

The Wildcat loop takes you into a pretty ravine with a babbling brook, then leads you to Deer Hollow farm with pigs and goats. It is aptly named, as five young deer were grazing right by the trail with no concern about humans. Nice hike.

Perfect for 2 hr hike

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

Amazing views of nature, wildlife, and even a small farm.

Plenty of parking with water fountains throughout trails.

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.

lots of up and down. tiring but worth the effort

Great hike! Lots of great scenery and trees. I would do it again.
