Some steep hills and not much shade so bring plenty of water. If you've done the reservoir loop and want more of a challenge this is for you. Great views of the reservoir and Mt Diablo.

I think this is a tough walk; there are 4 serious hills. With that being said, I LOVE that we have this so near us to do.
