Busy trail with lots of people, bikes, kids, and dogs. A couple that was ahead of me allowed their large dogs to poop on the trail and didn't pick it up. Lots of dog poop on the trail. Yes, it may be in a cow pasture with all the other cow patties, but it's unsanitary to leave dog poop. One family was walking a pit bull off leash.

The trail itself is nice, but I suspect the lot of people are here because there is no charge to use the park. If you want solitude, this is not the place to come.

Went out around 430pm and had plenty of time to enjoy the views and watch the sun go down. Some amazing views of the hills and the city. I recommend going in the spring while everything is still green and vibrant.

Excellent trail except the few times cows block the way. Pats district did an amazing job rehabbing this trail after the bad winter a year ago.

we loved this trail. it's a good length to do with the dog and without needing too much of a pack - just some water.

Trail was ok, not overly scenic. There is a rocky area that is nice. Lots of squirrels and large black beetle bugs crawling around. Was hoping to see a hawk or other large birds but only saw crows. Most of the trail was in the sun.

My go to local hike. Good elevation climb, not too agressive. There are several loops so you can tailor your hike to your needs. Maps are available at kiosk. Free parking/entry. Dog friendly. Cattle grazing in winter until early summer. Winter can be muddy and summer gets hot, plan accordingly.

Such beautiful views of Livermore and a great workout! Takes about an hour and a half all the way around, although I had a baby on my back and am pregnant, so I am sure many of you could do it faster than me.

Free parking and a great mix of hills and rocky paths and flatter parts as well.

Tried doing this trail in early March and trail was too muddy to complete but today was successful! Trail was very dusty, dry and sunny. Kind of missed the cows that were present earlier in the year.

Very open space with limited traffic, luckily it wasn't a hot day when I went so my dog had a blast (even though the cows didn't like his presence). Muddy in some areas, decent views in others. Nothing particularly outstanding about it but worth it of you want a quiet stroll.
