Moderate 1hr round trip hike when I just want to get out in open countryside but don’t have a lot of time. I’ve done this high a hundred times, in all seasons. Easy, relaxing, and pretty.

This trail is sweet. I was looking for a trail with nice views that was easy enough for children yet still rewarding. The hike was pretty easy even for my 6 year old son. We were rewarded with awesome views of Mt Diablo and even got to see a coyote running around.
