Walked the ridge and then descended a steep slope through dry grass/reeds. Should have stayed in the trail.

Great loop with a mix of climbing and flat terrain. Gorgeous views from Mt Diablo to the Carquinez bridge. Had to navigate around a herd of about 30 cows at one point blocking the trail. A lot of cattle gates along the trail. Make sure to bring plenty of water for a hot day. Lots of lizards, wild flowers, and birds.

Perfect in the winter. Everything's all green and there isn't much shade, but it can get muddy if it's rained recently.
