Great trail. Easy difficulty in terms of inclines and declines, moderate difficulty in terms of length. Mostly open space with some patches of shade. Not too many bugs or hikers, mostly mountain bikers.

This trail was very breezy and not difficult at all. Not much hills and mostly flats with part shade and part sun. There are no view at the rest point, but a picnic table where you can sit. Be careful of bikers as they are many of them flying down the hill.

Great hike, good amount of elevation. Went with my dad who can’t do steep climbs. Good hike, nice views, good combination of shade and sun.

Wide, well maintained trail with minimal elevation . Took my two dogs and had to keep pulling off to the side because there were so many bikes. Only a few other hikers and trail runners early on a Saturday morning. While I did enjoy this hike, I will probably not return to this part of Calero. The new entrance invited a lot of people with no outdoor etiquette. I have never seen so many people walk wherever they want, ignoring all trails. I saw this mostly on the half mile up and around the smaller loop both times I've been here. Extremely disappointed in people using this space.
