Enjoy a scenic and short walk out to the Deer Hollow Farm. Enjoy oak woodland and chaparral scrub along the way. This is an excellent spot for bird watching.

Relative flat trail to enjoy nature with deers roaming, woodpeckers chipping and wild turkeys!

very nice at the first half, but less shady at the second half. The farm is interesting, but quiet stinky.

Fun casual hike with family. Our 2 year olds both did this hike many times with little whining.

Ran the 3.1 mile loop counterclockwise, and overlapped so that I made the farm my finish line. Great warm weather trail as it is mostly shaded with exposed area consisting of level or downhill terrain.

Easy but fun, especially when the pigs are out and about

My favorite hiking running walking trail at Rancho. Ran this trail with a off-road jpg stroller for years. Walked it with my kids. Team with a running group. Hiked it alone or with friends. Beautiful. Great forest feel yet right in there city.

Sometimes there stream is running.

Always a great placed to be.

The entrance and the first Mile or so are very family heavy to get to the farm. but then you can pick a trail and the crowds dissipate. The hike to the vista point is moderate to hard depending on your fitness level.

Paved and Unpaved walking trail for kids and parents. Spotted lots of turkeys, deers, squirrels on the way. And animal at the farm were a treat. My 3 yr old walked 75% of the hike

This is called a Coyote loop trail rather than a Deer Hollow farm trail. I would rate it as 'moderate' rather than 'easy' for novice. Heavily used during weekends and holidays. It can have a few slippery spots during/after heavy rains, but it is good for running and hiking.

Absolutely beautiful trail! It's so nice because you feel so far away from the city. All sorts of birds, squirrels and deer roaming around. Nice vista points. I personally would rate this trail as moderate, rather than difficult. It's on the longer side (depending on which loops you choose) but it's not anything that new hikers/children couldn't do.

My only complaint is that it is a very heavily trafficked trail (however, I went on a Sunday morning)

Overall, 5/5!

Nice trail; not too tough, but lots of people! Worthy views if you go on a clear day.

Great trail

A lot of incline. Challenging, if you're not in shape. Some shade.

* PG&E trail: By far, this trail is the toughest and steepest of the three, though it is wider than the other two. A nice shade by trees in parts. This trail provides a lot of vista points for views of the valley below and beyond. You can see the bay water.
* Wildcat Loop trail: Single-lane trail, completely shaded. Almost no incline. Seems to be a very popular trail; there was more traffic here than on the other two trails. No vistas from this trail because this is at the bottom of the hill.
* Coyote trail: Single-lane trail, completely shaded. There is a bit of incline before it joins the PG&E trail.

An elevation gain of 928 feet, as reported by Garmin.

PG&E trail was pretty tough for me but definitely worth it!! Next time I will go all the way up!
