Nice moderate/easy climb to the top. Trail is shaded the entire length. Downhill is fast with good flow. Busy on the weekends, so watch for hikers and other bikers heading up/down.

Sanborn Park is nicely shaded while part of trails in Castle Rock Park offers great view.

We do this loop several times a year. A great workout, and very beautiful.

The short part of the trail to Summit Rock was open today and provided beautiful views of the bay area. We learned that this part of the trail is normally only open from October to late January.

Very impressed with this trail. Takes a good amount of work to get to the top (had to hike my bike for a few spots) but the way down is worth it!

hiked in the rain, went searching for waterfall and could not find any water... :(

Good one for a quick hike with family...

Hiked with a three year old and an infant in a stroller.

Good quick nearby trail from San Jose. Great with the dog. Bad part was the actual trail to summit rock was closed. No views.

Beautiful forested trail. A bit steeper than description describes. The trail in a few places has some trees and rocks that you have to hope over.

Nice hike deep in the redwoods. Quite steep. Dog friendly. Not as breathtakingly beautiful at some others, but worth checking out.

Short and sweet trail. Mostly tree-covered trail with some moderate inclines and declines. Good place to hike for 1.5 - 2 hour. Trail head is a 10min ride from Saratoga Main Street.

Went hiking with my 4 year old. It was a little strenuous going up to the lookout, but so worth it! The parking was confusing, but again worth it.
