This loop is great if you’re looking for an open 10k (I did a few laps in the parking lot to complete) trail run with elevation. You’ll encounter hikers, walkers, horses, mountain bikers, and snakes, but the trail is wide enough to avoid all with ease—happy trail running!!

Easy moderate trail with wide gravel tracks. Rolling hills, nice views. Not much shade. Some bikers, but manageable. Wild flowers - and a few snakes - in the Spring time.

Awesome trail. If you follow the AllTrails route, the first two miles are a steep incline followed by a more gradual decline. I might swap directions next time and take the gradual incline. Super pretty views at the top.

This is a trail with great scenery, there is quite a bit of elevation. Ran across a few snakes and no shade. However, I enjoyed it and would recommend for hiking, biking, and horseback riding!

This is one of my favorite training hikes, especially in spring. It's a straight forward, simple workout. The rolling hills are beautiful and the trail is easy to find and follow. Bathroom at the parking lot and lots of ways to modify this hike to extend it.

A moderate elevation high that steady levels off. You get some views of San Benancio (sic?) and the Salinas Valley. After the peak and the view, the trail is kind of boring especially when walking back to the parking lot along the trail behind the Toro houses.
