Great trail but terrible routing. Would be nice if it followed a more intuitive path.

This time I took a shorter loop: Instead of continuing on Seaview Trail, I returned on Meadows Canyon Trail, Loop Road, Laurel Canyon Trail, and back to Wildcat Peak to complete the loop.

This is a really really good hike for a novice hiker looking to try tackling something with more distance for the first time. Easy to get to. Hills are gradual both up and down. Plenty of bathrooms and water stops along the way. A decent portion is paved or gravel/semi-paved. Lots of places to cut this loop short. Decent amount of traffic throughout. Also the entire trail is full of great views and benches/picnic tables to take breaks and enjoy them. Took me about 6 and a half hours with some breaks but I’d recommend getting in earlier and taking this slower to really appreciate the views. Only con is this trail is difficult to follow exactly. I’m sure I’d have gotten super lost if I didn’t have the map downloaded and checked it regularly to make sure I was still on track.

Did half of the loop today due to bad air quality in the area.

This is my favorite route in this area. It encompasses three regional parks, has great views of the bay, reservoirs, and surrounding hills. It provides long-distance hiking or running in a safe environment.
