The Brushy Peaks trail, along with a few others are still closed because of the fires last year. However, Team Sugarloaf has done an awesome job with rebuilding, so I don't expect the trails to stay closed for much longer (fingers crossed). I ended up doing Bald Mt trail to Grey Pine trail to Meadow trail to do a loop.

Despite the inclement weather and heavy cloud cover, the 'views' were spectacular. The rolling fog passing over the charred manzanita scrub on Bald Mt was almost surreal.

Well defined. Lots of sun. Not busy. Might be worth an annual pass to this park. Had restrooms at base which was a plus.

I hiked a portion of this trail combined with the Gray Pine Trail and the Bald Mountain Trail. It was a moderately strenuous 8.4 mile loop. There are lots of scenic views of Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo and other surrounding peaks. The ascent was about 2200 ft..
