The Edgewood Trail runs east to west on the northern side of the park. The trail has junctions with the Franciscan Trail and Serpentine Loop. Starting from the east, in the Day Camp parking lot, one has a strenuous first half mile with an approx. 9.5% uphill grade.

Steep in a couple sections (downhill and up), but a great “backyard” way to escape the ordinary street running. Limited parking, but there is usually always at least 1 spot open.

Easy trail, nothing spectacular. You end up next to the 280 which is not nice, but then again you get a great view of the bay on the other side.

It’s great as a an off-road running track though.

Great trail and nice workout. Edgewood features some really nice views, a variety of types of terrain and easy alternative paths in case you want to adjust your hike for ease/more tree cover. Definitely wear sunblock and bring a bottle of water as it can be on the warm side during the summer. Also note that there is a good amount of poison oak to the sides of the trail. Nothing to worry about but be aware. There is a nice parking lot, water filling station and a cute education center at the entrance to the trail too.

It’s a beautiful trail, loved it.

it's an easy trail but it's all open ground, so on a moderately hot day, it can get sweaty and tiring if you are not used to going outdoors in hot summer.

Some of the trails are a bit steep in places but totally worth it. Where else will you get OXYGEN near a city like this? And the sound of birds!

Good backyard hiking! Despite the short distance, it has a nice incline to challenge you to a second a
nd third round!

You can hear cars for some of it. Doesn’t feel like you’re truly away in nature. Good for those that live close by and just want a quick hike.

For a compact area, the trails in Edgewood Preserve feel well laid out. It's scenic, with a mixture of covered and open spaces.

The two reasons for the low rating is that 1) it's heavily trafficked and 2) you almost always can hear car noise. This is specially pronounced on the parts of the reserve bordering Edgewood Road and highway 280.

This is a easy hike that is good for a hot day since it is mostly covered.

Great Trail to enjoy nature while walking and getting your cardio going. There's different trails to choose from but it's a great trail to begin your day before getting to work. I suggest getting there between 5-530 am to be done by 7-730am

Went on a Sunday and the parking lot was full. A well covered area for the first half and open views for the second half. Still muddy after the big storm but a ranger was present and warned people about certain trails that were washed out.

It was a nice experience walking through the different trials. I saw deer and a small rattle snake too.
