great views but steep incline/decline. limited parking on Claremont Ave and this entrance started with a huge incline. I was out of breath within minutes... maybe I'm just terribly out of shape

Very steep hills. After a few days of rain it was pretty slippery at points.

A couple really steep hills, balanced with phenomenal views. Not great for conscientious dog owners

Just a fire trail that is being maintenanced, so crap every where. Long hill (.5 ml) at the beginning and some pretty views of the SF Bay and Oakland.

The views are unbelievable. My only wish is that the trail was a bit longer, the steepness of the hills add serious intensity, but I'd love an excuse to spend a bit more time looking out over the city scapes.

Great views of the bay. In the beginning it is steep but not too bad. Don’t go counterclockwise because then you end up going downhill some very steep hills. There are some rocky and slippery areas so just be careful when going down.

This gets a 4 star for the rewarding view. However, be forewarned, the inclines are relatively steep making the descent steep as well. can it be done...? Yes, carefully; unless you train on or in this terrain. Path can be rocky in one instance or covered in dry eucalyptus leaves. Beautiful view of the entire bay & rolling hills covered in trees.

Similar (and great) views to other hikes in area. Fairly steep for the distance.
