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.

Great Hike to see the Green Hills - a little muddy about 2 miles from the finish but considering how much it has poured - it wasnt too bad

Can't get any better. Beautiful, wide range of views from inside a forest to the top of a big hill. Not much traffic - people anyway! Lots of sweet cows on the trail.

Nice hike, lots of wide open views of grassy hills. Not overly busy, even on a Saturday.
