I’ve done this trail about 4 times already. My friends I’ve nearby so we walked to the beginning of the trail. It has some amazing views of the bay. You can see Sam Francisco and it’s bridges from the hills

Super windy!!! We walked counter clockwise, but I’m thinking it would be better to go clockwise. Some of the downhills could be challenging for those with knee or ankle problems.

I would love to do this trail again when the rolling hills are green instead of brown. Be prepared for no shade for much of the hike. Trail is dirt road in good switchbacks to speak of but the grade only got really steep in a couple of places and didn't last too long. Great views 360!

I’d recommend this trail! The first half is tasking with killer views, the second half is okay. Took me about 2.5 hours but i was stopping frequently.

Came here for view - well worth it despite clouds. This was hard!

Beautiful meadowy trail. Saw a rattle snake and when the fog rolled in, wind picked up enough to blow off my hat (so hold on to your hats!). We took a left at the first split off and took the uphills in the beginning of the hike. Decent climb in some parts but not terrible- views definitely make up for it. Well maintained gravel trail throughout the meadow with paved roads in some parts.

We took a little detour by walking up the unmarked trailhead at the front of the parking lot as opposed to walking to the very end. Added about .5 mile or so. Lots of hills, great views, San Pablo ridge was killer!! Little to no shade - bring sun screen...I GOT SUNBURNED!

The San Pablo Ridge is beautiful and challenging, but the mezue and wildcat loop part were just okay. The last mile is concrete. We did see a coyote and the cows were super cute and friendly though! Next time we will just turn around at the mezue junction instead of doing the whole loop

Dramatic views; and some good, steep, little inclines. Made it without too many skids, even tho it was pretty dry. Tho I have to say, paved Wildcat Creek Trail is an anti-climactic ending. An otherwise great hike.
