This rugged loop joins all or parts of the Chamise, Las Trampas Ridge, Corduroy Hills, Madrone, Virgil Williams, Del Amigo, Sulphur Springs, Trapline and Mahogany trails, leading you through an amazing variety of terrain, from sun-baked chaparral to shady forest. Some of the best views in the East Bay of Mt. Diablo are to be found on this loop, which passes through a stunted forest of scrub oak and other interesting plant communities. No bicycles or horses allowed.

SO MUDDY!!! I don't know how I would have completed it with out my trekkers. Enjoyed the cows themselves along the way... the cow pies not so much, they don't allow for a straight path! Lol

This is probably the toughest hike in the Bay Area for one this short. I did it once with my wife and it was definitely the toughest trail she has ever done. A lot of variety and a little bit of negotiation of big rocks close to the top. A lot of variety in forest and views and we never saw another hiker...
I'd like to do it again tomorrow......only 400+ miles away.
