Great views of forests, waterfall, canyons, and streams. Many birds and wildlife. Breathtaking vistas with panoramic views stretching from Mt. Diablo in the East Bay Area to snowy Mt. Lyell on the high eastern slopes of the Sierras near Yosemite, then dive down into canyons with streams coursing through the shade of older growth forests of cedar, pine, fir and oak. High rocky promontories, native acorn grinding rocks, a magnificent waterfall, many birds and wildlife of all kinds, and a lake.

Beautiful, alternate routes are a bit steep. Wound up doing about 12 miles. Bring lots of water and watch out for snakes.

It's beautiful! Will go back again. Some dog owners are naive and let their dogs walk off leash knowing they're harmful.. my dog (miniature toy poodle) almost got attacked by a German shepherd.. if it wasn't for me hugging her against a tree she would've been dead. They have signs everywhere to keep dogs on leash. Signs are there for a reason.

Beautiful hike, definitely moderate and may be difficult for beginners. San Antonio Falls overlook is beautiful but the actual SAF are easily missed if you don't go beyond the initial rocks. The trail down to the creek can be easily missed, but ask others on the hike and from my experience, everyone was friendly and willing to give you directions. I did both the hike up the SAF (ART overlook) and down to the stream and ended up doing 11 miles. Worth it! Very important, buy insect repellent (mosquitoes are aggressive lol) and of course, sunblock.

Beautiful single track trails, with some amazing views and waterfall. Great for training or hiking.

Love this trail. There are many side trails and entrances which make it easy to get disoriented. Luckily there are always a lot of hikers, at least on the weekends.

Great trail! It ended up being almost 8.5 miles round trip if you go all the way to the creek.
