This trail is only about three miles but a lot of it is uphill. If you make a right when you reach the loop, toward the end are two very steep hills - makes me which I went left when I reached the loop! Doesn't offer too many beautiful views, but close enough. This is a good beginner's trail, but be careful on hot days, there are several parts that do not offer shade and you are surrounded by dead grass that reflects heat back onto you! Bring a lot of water if you're going on a warm day.

great view, but unfortunately there was a pretty big coyote close to the path so I had to turn around the day I took my dog. gone back since and is relatively 3 miles to do this loop

Easy loop that connects to Alhambra Creek Trail. Great views, some elevation gain but not huge. Love the cows, but watch out for all the cow pies!

Good hike with good views and some nice climbs. It can't be done stand alone the way it's drawn on the map... You have to walk in to it from one of the kiosks. I've don it in combination with other trails the same day.
