Very pretty, fun hike. I am an inexperienced hiker and had very little problems navigating the various branches of this hike.

We parked at a small lot right at the end of the East Bay Loop and went left. The first half of the hike from this direction is pretty lack luster and more of a relaxing walk. Once you get to past Heritage Park is when it becomes more challenging and very beautiful. Scrambled up a few rocks for some amazing views. We finished off the trail with the East Bay (?) loop through the marsh. The water was very low so there was no mud on this part of the trail. But it looks like the water could get very high there, so if during wet season I'd recommend parking at Heritage Park and hiking up to the bench at Red Bridge, then looping back around.

The trail also tracked at about 8 miles on my phone, but we went off trail a few times to climb and take pictures.

I very much enjoyed my time, and it was a pretty easy exprience.
