Really nice narrow trails. Make sure to bring good shoes. I got lost in the trail because the signs aren’t good no biggie because this app helps guide you ! Overall me and my boyfriend had a good time.

Too narrow for social distancing, too buggy, overgrown grass, no views. I do not recommend this trail in COVID times.

We had a nice hike on this beautiful trail with friends as we did the loop trail, my wife likes it because lots of shades and we've seen a rabbit, squirrel, birds and lots of wild berries along the narrow areas of the hill. it's also nice to see a wild honey bee hives, its amazing to see these undisturbed wild bees but also watch out dog poof along the way as walkers with dog left behind.

Really nice hike but does get confusing bc a lot of the forks in the trail don’t have an markers. I came out in a completely different place where I went in even though I was supposed to be hiking a loop. We did see many lizards which was exciting. The vista at the top is unbelievably gorgeous. Well worth the hike but not a good trail for social distancing as the path is very narrow for a good part hiking up the hill.

Pros: mostly flat, shaded, not muddy even for springtime. Cons: terrible for COVID-19 social distancing - the Grizzly Peak section of the trail is too narrow, poison oak is growing fiercely since the recent rains.

Nice trail-not a lot of views like the other reviewers have said, but secluded and quiet. Catch a view of SF from the top by crossing grizzly peak Blvd.

This is a very nice hike if you are looking for a peaceful walk surrounded by trees. No views or panoramas but a relaxing hike. You will find a youth campground that provides potable water about halfway through. I recommend this trail!

It was foggy when we went, even in the afternoon. No views, but a secluded walk in the forest. There was a huge redwood to climb around on. There was some road noise from a nearby road.

Beautiful trail in the forest. Not a lot of views but very peaceful with little traffic, creek, and trees. Because it’s shady, it gets very muddy after a rain. Not a lot of signs so you better bring your phone or the map. Enjoyed it
