Nice easy trail. Ample parking at the trailhead. Popular trail for dogs, so watch your step! Moderate incline to the top where a bench is nicely located with wonderful views. We started out in the early morning where we were greeted by fog which burned off nicely by the time we were ready to hike back down to the trailhead. Our hike down afforded great views of Mt Tam and Sausalito bay.

As this is dog friendly, dog walkers need to do a better job of disposing of their dog waste, there's frequently plastic bags on the side of the path (there's even a garbage at the trailhead guys!) I do this almost once a week, and my favorite part of this walk is the grouping of trees you get to about half a mile in, with a beautiful overlook of the nearby valley (and the bay on the other side of the path). Provides some nice shade and breeze.

Dogs allowed, bumpy places, but you can make it with a hiking baby stroller. Very muddy after a rain. Beautiful & fun.
