Eagle View is one of the best of many great trails at Sunol Wilderness in the hills east of Fremont, California. Eagle's View Trail in Sunol Wilderness dives into a canyon and climbs up out of it to reveal stunning vistas of the park and the nearby East Bay hills. As scenery goes, this is about as good as it gets in the San Francisco Bay Area. Springtime, when the hills are bright green and the California poppies are really popping, is the best time to come, with winter and fall not far behind (the October tarantula-mating season is a crowd-pleaser. Really). Summertime is a bit toasty, especially for this hike, which includes lots of climbing and descending.

We hiked the the Eagle View trail at Sunol Regional Wilderness. Total distance was 7.2 miles with a elevation gain of 1,683 ft. The views were spectacular. There is few challenge ascents in the beginning but overall it was a pleasant hike.

We hiked up to the Eagle View trail at Sunol Regional Wilderness with a 7.5-mile loop hike (4.5 hours) with a total ascent of 2,000 feet. The fields were lush green from our recent winter rains and showing abundant of the spring wildflowers.

UNREAL greenery and verdure along this trail. Can be crowded if you head the flag rock way but the trail to eagle via old joe trail has nobody on it and absolutely spectacular views for a little hike.

As a part of our Sunol Regional Wilderness Loop Hike (8.5 miles), we started at the Indian Joe Creek Trailhead, then we turned to Canyon View Trail, continued onto Camp Ohlone Road, Geary Road, Backpack Road, McCorkle Trail, Eagle View Road, Cave Rocks Road and finally returned to Indian Joe Creek Trail to complete the loop. This hike was an 8.5-mile loop hike (4.5 hours) with a total ascent of 1,900 feet. The scenery was fantastic, and great workout too. Definitely will be back in the Spring.

Loved this trail and feeling high up. Felt like some trial maintenance along the way would have helped. Watch out for Mama cows. Sometimes they don't want to clear the trail for you to get by. Altogether, a great hike. We'll be back!

Very nice trail with beautiful views, plants, and cows. About 6 miles total from the parking lot. Wear pants to avoid scratches from plants when the trail narrows. Highly recommended, one of my favorite hikes in the Bay Area.
