Nice rolling hills Saw flock of goats w their cattle dogs on the way: awesome ! They allow them to graze to keep pasture low in order to prevent wildfires. Also pass beside race track: noisy and surprising ! All in all: very beautiful hike The herd path reminded me of the farm where i grew up

Good trail but I was by myself and saw a adult mountain lion that was just watching me and hid down into the grass so I turned around. I was scared because I’m small and didn’t want to get attacked, next time ill make sure Im not alone and bring a stick. Im lorenzo’s wife

l love coming here for a 60-90 minute hike with a little bit of incline. It can get crowded. Nice views of the pretty rolling hills in the Toro Park area, especially in February-April. It can get very hot and there's no cover from the sun, so I recommend keeping walks here limited to the early morning or evening.

Perfect 6 mile recovery run on wide firebreak trails. After the initial climb to skyline it’s all downhill from there. Very easy to run this one on a lunch break and perfect for weekends too.

It was a great hike with a lot of incline! The scenery is amazing once you get on top of the hill. The only down side is there are no restrooms around!! Other than that it was a well worth it hike and would defiantly hike it again!!

Perfect distance to train for a 10K. Has challenging Hills and numerous sections on which to practice downhill running. Gets hot during the summer so bring plenty of water to hydrate. Plenty of parking and clean bathrooms.

This trail was decent. Too crowded for my liking. Lots of other hikers, bikers and dogs. Lots of sharp inclines. Had to turn around after two miles because I had terrible blisters so I never got to complete it.
