Rolling green hills with nice views, mostly wide trails share with few bikers. Good for walking and trail running too.

HikingGreat!

Hiked for the first time today on a Sunday in late Jan 2021. Lovely views for rolling green hills. Most of the route had wide fire-road sized trails which felt safe during COVID-19. I probably saw 200 people on the trail, but only crossed paths with about 50. There's not a ton of shade here, which was welcome during this time of year. Nice views of Walnut Creek and also the Sac Delta from the ridge tops. Bicyclist were responsible, but it was sometimes a bit un-nerving when they whizzed by.

Great views on Ridge Top trail. Spring conditions in January! Watch out for mountain bikers. They go fast and aren’t allowed on Ridge Top. First time I got scared by a biker.

This trail has a variation of small hills to flatland. Nice views along the trail. Keep in mind that it does takes some time to do the whole loop, so I recommend starting early.

A nice easy loop trail with minimal incline. Trail was pretty muddy today after a few days of rain. It sticks to your shoes and kind of builds up. Trail doesn’t take you high enough to get a great view, but it’s pretty out! Nice to pass the ranch at the halfway point too!
