A short loop option that explores the beauty of the botanic regional preserve. Start from the Skyline Blvd staging area and loop around on the Huckleberry trail.

Awesome plant life, and Banana Slugs.

Trail is narrow at times which can be problematic if you don’t like heights. Overall very nice and not too difficult. Incline at the end will get you breathing hard!

Covered, narrow, peaceful and fairly gentle.

This is a relatively easy and short hike, but what I love about it is it is cool during the summer and has a nice variety of plants like Manzanita and Huckleberry, and many wildflowers in the spring.

Great short hike easily accessible to Oakland. There at a few hills so you can still get a bit of a good workout in.

Not as easy as expected and wondered if we would make it. We did and grateful for the experience.

Lovely and easy hike. Very shaded and flat. The path is narrow so be mindful where you step. There is a gap in the trail on the lower huckleberry path, but it's not difficult to get over. If you go counter clockwise, the last quarter mile is somewhat steep and gets the blood pumping. Great way to finish!

Nice little short and easy hike almost completely in the shade. If you want to do longer hikes there are good connectors on both ends. Can be combined quite nicely with Redwood or Sibley. And huckleberries are pretty tasty...

Quite narrow, mostly shaded, not many spots for views, no views that impressive. Took the baby in the stroller, that was tough, won't do that again. Trail is really only wide enough for 1 person.

This trail was narrow, secluded and shaded in the woods. Hiking it during the weekdays would be less crowded.

Narrow paths, sometimes a little daunting where it's open to the downward side or where the path is slick. Wished I'd had on better shoes or a walking stick. Wider paths if you detour down toward lower Pinehurst, but then a nice uphill back. Mostly shady, but the seating area at marker 6 that some have mentioned is not (view instead). About dogs, pamphlet says not permitted in Huckleberry except if passing though on the Skyline National Trail; did see 4 dogs on the lower path today.

Great for a hot day with lots of shade. The perfect birthday hike; even with the trail renovations! Only thing is; the trail says no dogs allowed but on All Trails it says they are.
