Good for what it is: a well maintained paved way between suburban backyards for the vast majority of the way. Great for running, biking, or walking but not much to see except ideas for patio design and fences.

A wonderful trail.

This trail was great for a Sunday bike ride. It's completely paved, mostly flat and shaded. There were a lot of people out walking, jogging, and biking.

There is a slide near the Valle Vista staging area and that section of the trail is closed. But there is a dirt path around the .25 mile marker that connects to Augusta Drive and provides a detour around the slide. It's hard to say when the trail will be repaired.

If you do the entire trail from the Valle Vista staging area to Pleasant Hill Rd, it's 7.65 miles each way. It took me a little over an hour at a leisurely pace.

This trail actually continues past Moraga Commons (see previous review) to Valle Vista Staging Area. From there one can access EBMUD trails (permit required). The Lafayette-Moraga Trail is very popular with cyclists, walkers, families.

This is a good walking trail. It runs from Lafayette at Olympic Rd to the Moraga Commons. It has a might to moderate incline which makes it great for biking. There is heavy foot traffic early mornings with walkers, runners and bikers. Dogs must be leashed.
