Good share on the trail in the first and last mile in the Nature Area, but know that dogs are NOT allowed on this portion of the trail. Once you are out of the nature area, the trails are much busier and exposed, so bring plenty of water! There was also a LOT of poison oak along the way and overgrown plants blocking portions of the trail, so dress appropriately.

Once you get up the views are glorious! On a clear day you can see all the way to SF! The second half is through cow pasture.
