the trail was amazing, im a lady and i went alone. felt safe. like others have stated. i accidentally got lost. i missed the 2nd turn which is easy to do. it seems like a do not enter area but its not. yet in still i kept of course enough to turn around and make my finishing point 3 miles. the uphill getting back will definitely get your blood pumping hard. I'll be back often

Great hidden gem. I missed the turn to make it a short loop so ended up doing at least double the mileage that I was intending, but it was peaceful and my dog had a great time. Hardly anyone on the trail on a Saturday afternoon...loved seeing the cows too.

Beautiful loop with semi steep undulations that made for great views and a nice workout. From the ridge line you can see the SF skyline, East Bay, & the Carquinez Strait. It was a tad muddy in some brief spots (par for the course in January) but very manageable. We saw lots of friendly cows and a skittish coyote. Loved the rolling green hills and giant old oak at the trailhead. Easy street parking and dog friendly. No restrooms.

In the afternoon, the first leg is shaded and the loop is very exposed and sunny with great views. it took us two hours at a slow pace

This trail would’ve been very beautiful if it hadn’t been so foggy on the day that I went. It’s short, moderately intense and there are a lot of cows. Big cows that would stare you down and almost make you turn around. I liked it though

Nice trail. Go early (7/8am) otherwise it gets hot since there is no shade for most of the climb. It tired my dogs out so it's a nice short hike to work the energy out of your pups! There were also a lot of poop (cattle and dog) on the trail. Seems like there are dog owners who don't pick up after their dogs.

Pretty solid climb. about 1k feet of elevation if you include going back up to parking by Mira vista. it was quite muddy due to the rain and there are cows on the trail as well as cow leavings... I would do it again.

Nice trail, but had to turn back due to aggressive cattle.

It’s actually very pretty for being so close to houses and city life. We went on a cool misty morning, and it was quiet and secluded. It was fun to see cows along the trail. If you have more time, you can do the longer loop! It is an easy-moderate hike and a great place to trail run!
