Great trail. Lots of off-leash dogs. My dog is well-socialized, so she liked it a lot. One warning: the hairpin turn from the Baccharis trail to the Dunn trail is not marked and easy to miss. Got a bit lost needlessly.

Easy to find TH and lots of parking. Prefer this hike in the winter. Not too many people going out but much busier coming back. I extended the hike by taking Monterior and Tate - increased the elevation and miles but not a ton to see

We night hiked this loop starting at just before sunset and finishing about 5 minutes before the park closes at 10. Beautiful views of the city at night, then the moon rose a burning orange before facing into a clear white light to hike by. The wide, flat (ish, still some occasional roots and rocks to watch for) trail made for easy night hiking. the length was just perfect, about 2.5 hours. Saw tiny snakes, huge spiders, and a little orange newt!

A little longer than the Burr, Graham, and WestRidge trail loop.
