Unfortunately, no flowers around this time. Just the white ones. Everything is dry, but you get a decent view as you go up of everything. This is an easy trai.

You can walk as far as you want with all the different tails that intersect each other. Just be careful you don’t get disoriented. I just the tail recording on this app. Major difference and extremely helpful.

Nice easy walking trail. You’re either going up or down, but it’s not that steep. I saw several deer along the way. I completed the trail in about 1.5 hours.

very nice trail. a bit of a climb for the first half. But very worth it for the nice views from the top. Also a nice mix of sunny and shaded spots.

A scenic trail with a surprising amount of wildlife. The deer aren't spooked if you are close, you might see some walking on the trail ahead of you.

Love that this trail is close to emerald hills coffee. Makes it easy to find a comfortable spot after a good hike.

This hike was just ok. A portion of this hike is not shaded so make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen! Lots of poison oak.

A good well marked trail. Loads of lizards at this time of the year though!

Not that many wild flowers though. But overall it’s a good trail with decent maintenance and amazing view. As the it rains a lot recently in the Bay Area, the trail becomes as green as places in Hawaii :)

We did this trail on weekend, lots of visitors for wild flower walk, parking was tough. We chose Sylvan, Serpentine trails - very mellow hill, lots of shades. There are wild flowers blooming along the way, but need some imagination to find 'flower carpet'. This park has the best marked trail sign and map, very helpful.

The trail was beautiful and pretty clean. If you're trail running by yourself however I'd make sure to arrive before 8 (or dark depending on the time of year). I got here as the sun peaked behind the hills and it got dark quickly. Also, I strongly believe I was stalked by a mountain lion and the deer were running the opposite direction towards me when I hit some of the areas away from the freeway noise. Anyway, I made it safely but was the only one in the parking lot when I was done. Little scary so be careful out there.

great little hike just as described nice views. I only saw three people on the trail. I don't really feel like it was a moderate height because I was so short. same terrain with another four miles might be moderate. all in all nice day

Somewhat muddy in spring, but worth it for its quiet and proximity to the city, with great hilltop views and spring wildflowers.

Excellent for moderate hike with some elevated areas. Good views from the top, some wild flowers and wildlife around... perfect for small or large groups. Good to pack a sandwich and some water.

Beautiful trail with some wildflowers sighting at late March. It wasn’t as many as we expected, maybe it’s still too early? But we love the green hills, tons and tons of miner’s lettuce and maiden’s hair fern.

The trail was okay. Not very breathtaking views. But it is good to have some trails in Peninsula

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.

Beautiful hike in January. Lots of deer, neat views, and varied terrain.
