Fantastic short trail for walking or biking. A little busy on the weekends. Took the bike out, easy ride other than a few steep inclines, well worth it for the views.

I enjoyed this trail, walk 8.2 miles both ways. Beautiful sceneries and wild life. Bathrooms are open. Only giving it 4 stars because some of the bikers are very inconsiderate; they don’t mind the walkers no matter their age. I will return

I have it 4 stars because it seemed a little more than easy. The steepest portion is at the beginning right off the parking area. You have to walk up a very steep path which would not be good for small children and seniors. We followed the manzanita trail, but took it clockwise which was also steep. Next time we’ll do counter clockwise. Appreciated the colder misty rain because there are only a few shaded portions areas that are nice for warmer days. A well travelled trail. Expect to see many people and watch out for mountain bikers! Dogs allowed on-leash only.

It’s rocky, but it has its beauty, I really liked it. Tons of people and most wearing masks.

Pretty good short little hike. Great views of San Jose. Not a lot of shade. A few good inclines. PLEASE NOTE: this hike is barely 3 miles, not anywhere near 3.7 miles

4 stars due to: Noise from the closed to the trail highway, not clean at the area near the creek 5 stars could be given due to: views. flowers, the lake, trail maintenance Tips: lack of space at the parking lot, but there is enough space at the upper streets during weekend. Shadow is around 15% and may be challenging during hot days. Most of trail suitable for bikes and busy, so up to your consideration. Personal KPIs :-): Collected garbage along the route - 2 bags (1 bag = 1 gallon, UCL: 1, UDL: 2, Target: 0)

Just eh views, hills to work calves a bit, lacking in shade, moderately trafficked by walkers and bicyclists.

You can hear cars passing highway 17 all the way on the rout. I don’t recommend for calm hike in the nature.

A perfect place for a quick hike. There are a few good views and it is a little crowded and a lot of cyclist, but overall it's a great workout up and a pleasant stroll downhill.

Al principio mucha piedra y ruido del freeway. Pero al entrar con la naturaleza súper bonito todo. El agua, los pájaros. Es súper fácil el camino.

Some car noises but beautiful views over the bay and San Jose and tons of wildflowers.

Great trail! Would say it’s medium easy given the steep hill at the beginning. People on the trail need to be sure to social distance properly.

Heavily trafficked trail. Lots and lots of bicycles on the trail so not the best for my toddler to walk on his own. Flume trail was only one way for social distancing.

plenty of parking on the road but you can also pay to park in the lot. parking in the lot is free right now due to corona. trail was a bit busier than we had wanted though... some people keeping their distance, others clueless. single file is the rule at the park, please follow it!

Jones loop. AlwAys perfect.

straightforward up then down, more friendly incline for clockwise. narrow somewhere for letting runners/bikers pass by, very convenient traffic, good location right by downtown

Nice short trail close to town, dog friendly, Santa Cruz mountain and South Bay city views from the hilltop view area. Be sure to bring water for yourself and doggos at the top or if hot out. Shaded in some sections. Beware of bikers speeding downhill and move over.

Beautiful hike. Noise due to close by highway
