Some nice wide trails, some narrow. Wide trails great for covid distancing and avoiding bikers.

can see how there would be a lot of bikers on the trail so if you have a group, look out since there are some narrow areas

Lovely and serene. Brought the kids out for a Sunday hike.The trail has some steep climbs and the path is frequented by friendly mountain bikers with bells on to warn you they are approaching. Well worth checking out.

Great trail with lots of options and forks and some great vistas. Dog friendly, masks required (easy to social distance on the outer main trails), lots of bikers, some steep areas.

Great hike! Some muddy spots in winter, but not a big deal. Good for dogs. Watch for mountain bikes. Good views out over the Belmont hills neighborhoods and even some glimpses of the bay. Recommend!
