We didn't do the full loop, the start of the trail is near Orinda Bart and the by joining with the trails on the Berkeley side we ended at Rockridge Bart to Bart back to our starting point. Overall it was almost 7 miles. It was pretty steep climbing and very steep decline at the end.

This was one of those hikes that you can see a glimpse of on the commute through the tunnel. It gets up high and you can see everywhere. I did it solo in early winter so the weather and the views were great. I wouldn't want to do it in the summer. Most of the hike is exposed and would be very hot with all the hills. When I did it I saw no one anywhere..... I don't think I'd want to do it again...cardio challenge.
