This trail was beautiful! We hiked a total of 5 miles and got a great workout! The kids (8, 5, and 3) did great and the little one only needed to be carried about halfway. While the trail is technically an easy trail, the elevation pushes it to a moderate. Take your camera to get some great shots of the valley, and don’t forget your water! Pro Tip: go left! The trail is easier and more gradual to the right so it won’t be as jarring on your legs on the way down.

Easy hike with many different trail options. We went up the hill which was a bit strenuous for all of about
10 minutes (It was Hot). We looped around in about 1 hour, but there were still other trails to explore. Will definitely go back.

The scenery was beautiful! However being from the very flat Midwest this hike was definitely more of a moderate for me. Also there was very little shade which made it very hot. Definitely bring water. It was a bit tough on the dogs too. Loved the smell of garlic while we were hiking! I would definitely do it again, but preferably in cooler weather.

We started around 11 am and it was HOT. Was a fun hike but hard for the kids (8 & 10) who are not used to linger hikes with hills. Took us a while because we stopped a lot, but we did it and they were so proud of themselves after!

Scenic and perfect for the family or first time hiker. Come early to finish. We only completed a mile up and back. Met someone coming down who had a run in with a rattle snake. He tossed it to the side away from the trail. He said it was early for one to be seen - round 2:30 pm. Close contact with cows on the trail. Most picked up their small dogs when passing by the cows. Recommended.

amazing, from the beginning with the five turkey vultures circling over my dog and me, to the the nice serene up hill hike and the Prairie dogs every where, the magnificent view back into the Morgan Hill Valley, to the hawk that swoped down and on to a tree limb only about ten feet away and as he perched he seemed to say hello anyways the four miles hike was amazing
