Very enjoyable. Nice hike with some terrain variation and dogs can go off-leash. Bikers seem to enjoy it too and the trail is mostly wide enough for everyone. Good mix of shade and sun and a few vistas along the way. Just enough wildflowers in bloom to make it really feel like spring. As marked, the hike is just over 3.8 miles taking the loop clockwise and going Dunn to Graham to West Ridge to Baccharis to Dunn. There is no trail marker where Baccharis and West Ridge intersect. If you don't take a map, you'll want to note that it's 0.4 miles from Graham to Baccharis as you walk along West Ridge, that way you can keep an eye out for that trail. Or if you take the trail in reverse you can't miss the turn from Baccharis to West Ridge as that's where Baccharis ends. You can park in the lot off Skyline at Crestmont Drive and walk behind the building to get to the trailhead. Or, if you park off the road near where Joaquin Miller Road and Skyline meet, you can join the about trail 0.1 miles in.

i think its B.S. how mountain bikers get limited to fire roads. riding a fire road is like riding on the street. every trial that looks like it would be fun we cant be on. out of all the trails in most of the parks in the area there,s maybe 4 to 5 bike trails.how ever if you a hiker you can be on any trail you want{ now thats fair } NOT. WHERE ARE THE BIKE ONLY SINGLE TRACK TRAILS for those of use who arent afraid of a little danger like flower sniffin bird watching wimpy ass hikers. MOUNTAIN BIKER 4 LIFE

Great hike, lovely wildflowers all along the path. Could not find the loop (did not download the map) so circled back after 2 miles. Lots of ups and downs so feels like a nice workout and plenty of shade along the way. Several lovely vistas to look over the valley and over to the bay. Very enjoyable.

Great hike with lots of shade. Golden Spike trail is fascinating with some narrow passages and lots of back and forth amidst redwood trees and a few streams. Enough climbs to keep it interesting but on the east side of moderate.

Beautiful mostly quiet trail with many different kinds of wild flowers. Sunny but with some redwoods and shade at times. Easy, not much up hill if you go clockwise. The trail can be a bit hard to follow with the signposts and map but we managed to find our way around. Take a map at the parking lot! Lots of dog owners and their dogs!

I think this is a great hike to bring your non-hiking or beginning hiking friends as it’s pretty easy but has some uphill sections and variety.

Mostly shaded well defined trail with multiple forks. A good 2 hour hike!

Great, varied hike. I agree that the Graham trail was the best part!

Really enjoyed the hike - great views from the TH (which has a lot of parking). Extended the hike on Baccahris trail to West Ridge - also extended to Redwood Peak which was a nice walk but not many views from the actual peak. Graham trail is the best part of the hike. The one downside - was pretty busy for an early Friday

Lovely hike. The only issue we had was that the “loop” includes more than just Dunn trail. We got off track a couple times thinking we should stay only on Dunn.

Nice trail for a run. Mostly fire road width. Started near staging area on Skyline and headed clockwise. East Ridge Trail was pretty empty after a couple miles, even on a Sunday. The ascent on/to the West Ridge Trail from parking lot was a challenge but over quickly. Would certainly do this run again. Nice shade most of the time.

Depending on your pace (ours was a run/jog), it’s a nice, quick, moderate butt-burner workout. Trail is well-kept, beautiful redwoods and eucalyptus trees line the paths. Very dog-friendly.

Perfect mix of sun and shade. Note that you have to take Serpentine and Goldenspike trails to get to Dunn if you are starting counterclockwise from the south. No benches or water fountains on the trail.

We meant to do 3 miles and ended up doing those 3 miles plus these 8.

I love this trail, it’s just right! You can make it short enough or long enough I love how there’s shade threw most of the trail.

I'm 6 months pregnant and this was a good workout for me. This is a moderate hike with relatively mild ascends and descends if you tackle it counter clockwise. Lots of shade, beautiful redwoods, and nice views. The only downside were the horse piles near the beginning and end of the trail.

Went for the West ridge ascent. Super intense uphill then it's sweet sailing for 7 miles. A great ridge run... but don't blow past that Canyon trail descent marker on your ninth mile because you will curse the skies and Odin for half an hour.

It is an awesome trail!! Minor issue I encountered was having to maneuver around the horse piles in the middle of the trail

Awesome hike to bring the dog on

Some hills, some flat, some sunny, some shaded. A quick and fun varied terrain hike. There's a picnic area with water fountain complete with dog water bowl!

Great trail with varied scenery and good shade

Nice 3 hr hike. Only challenging bit is the climb up between ridges.

Nice, easy. Views of the bay and inland. Quaint forest near the city.

One of the best loops in the East Bay. Love it.

Pretty scenery. lovely woods. great way to share time with friends.

Nice shady, well maintained trail perfect for dogs and pregnant ladies. Lots of trees, including beautiful redwoods. If you head right to start the loop then you have an easy beginning and an easy finish with a moderate incline in the middle. We went on a Saturday and it wasn't very crowded.
