Very nice trail overall you get too see many different areas up from the hills. Including some water views of the San Pablo and Carquinaz Strait in the direction of Benicia and Vallejo.

The trails is about 95% exposed to the sun so early am or late pm is best. Signage is a little confusing so make sure to have a map with you. Single usage in some areas so watch out for mountain bikers.

From the main parking lot gate if you take the right side trailhead it will be a steep incline some 1100 feet but at least it will be on fresh legs. The return is a little more paced as it descends slowly.
A few benches here and there but best spot is under a few trees.

very quiet trail with beautiful wild flowers at this time of year. the beginning and end felt very secluded. Note that the paths very narrow at some points so wear long socks to prevent ticks.

Great Hike - Some of the best views in the East Bay. If you are like me you have been looking at all of these great green hills and you want to hike -this is the one. Easy to find Trailhead, although gate doesnt open until 8 AM, hike goes up right away and then pretty flat, MOST of trail was in good shape after 3 days of rain and 1 day of sun. Surprised there isnt moore road noise. I would stay away from the Kestrell Loop which I added for additional miles. Ton of Mud - wet and deep but loved the hike
