Couple of steep ups and downs, lots of loose dirt as well as rutted out hard pack. Excellent views of the bay when there isn’t cloud or fog cover. Saw a coyote, cows, lizards and a couple of hawks. Definitely a nice trail for a run. Had to walk a couple of the steeper sections because I’m new to trail running and don’t have my fitness level up high enough to run this entire trail. Overall a good experience and challenge. Will be back again.

Lovely loop. Clark Boas portion has some shade too. I had to hop a fence near the Mezue trail intersection to stay on the loop, but there were clear signs of use.

Great trail with views, wildlife and elevation gain. Can be a bit muddy after it rains and hot during the summers. Horseback riders and mountain bikers frequent this loop. Lots of hawks, coyotes and cows. There are a number of trail options so you can extend or shorten your loop based on your preference. Parking is available at the end of Clark Road. Make sure to shut the cattle gates when you enter the park.
