Great work out! We went on a Sunday afternoon. Once we passed the main attraction, the cave rocks, the crowds died down. We found a shady spot to hang our hammock and rest our feet. Overall, an easy trail with some difficulties and poison oak if you venture off!

Good hike with some cattle on the way .. It was rainy towards the end and met with some really muddy way.. But worth trekking ..

As a part of our Sunol Regional Wilderness Loop Hike (8.5 miles), we started at the Indian Joe Creek Trailhead, then we turned to Canyon View Trail, continued onto Camp Ohlone Road, Geary Road, Backpack Road, McCorkle Trail, Eagle View Road, Cave Rocks Road and finally returned to Indian Joe Creek Trail to complete the loop. This hike was an 8.5-mile loop hike (4.5 hours) with a total ascent of 1,900 feet. The scenery was fantastic. The workout was great. Definitely will return.

Great hike !!!

About 4h to do the loop with 30 minutes break for à pic nic at the top :)
Lots of cows and flowers !
Definitely worth it in spring ( might be yellow, dry and too hot in summer )

This is one of my favorite destination hikes in the Bay Area. The hike to get there gets a little steep towards the end and can be pretty tiring if you are not in shape. Once there the fallen rocks offer a number of activities from rock climbing to picnic spots.
