Very good trail for a good training, it's hard, but amazing.

This is how I rate: 5 stars has beautiful hike with a feature (i.e. waterfall) and a loop, 4 stars is a beautiful loop hike with no features, 3 stars beautiful but some empty spots along the way... I give this 2 stars because it has a lot of dead spots along the way but a nice view at the top. But the view at the top is very open to the sun, so not super picturesque. Great trail for running but I wouldn't call it a destination.

Good moderate challenge, well-maintained trails. Nice amount of shade. Didn't realize the last bit was on the road, but no big deal. Good window of vista in the middle of the hike - we were able to see the Bay. Took us a little under two hours.
