Nice hike. Part of the trail is along a creek. Trail is narrow and mostly dirt, can be muddy when it rains. Mostly families and Joggers. some dogs. Change in elevation along trail. Time walked was around 1.25 hours

Overall it was not bad. Trail has been turned into a unidirectional one due to COVID but lots of people not following directions. People with their dogs NOT on leash.

Nice, quick, family-friendly hike. Mostly canyon hiking - not a lot of views. Beware young children - some sections need a scramble that can be hard for them to navigate on their own. Two-way segment at the start connects into a pandemic friendly one-way loop. Ran into several families on a Saturday morning. Parking at the trailhead is a bit cramped. Enjoy!

was there with my 4 year old boy. he looked it much but was not very easy for him or may be his first track where he completed the full course.

Easy, light traffic, well marked, low intensity trail. There's some up and down when ascending / descending to the main trailhead from the parking area and on each side of the creek. Trailhead starts with moderate switchbacks, and there are a couple places with slick rocks. Nice view of the SF Bay from a distance within the first half mile. COVID-19 pandemic protocols are in place, so traffic is one way on the trail and a mask is required.

HikingGreat!

Did two miles as the scripted trail is different than AllTrails has in their system. This is not an easy trail. Has some steep inclines/declines that can be a bit rough at times. Anyone with challenges should avoid the unpaved trail, which is most of that area.

Beautiful views of the canyon, creek, and bay. Short but moderately difficult trail due to rockiness and uphill/downhills. Since it’s a narrow trail, it’s been marked one-way for COVID (although not all people adhere to this).

barely saw anyone on the trail midweek which was incredible. good tree cover throughout. i’m glad i chose to record my hike because the path is a lil confusing at times but the alltrails path is top notch. you have to cross the creek at one point near the start of the hike (then again at the end) which can be tricky to find but again, trust the app! this is good for solo or pairs of hikers but not good for kids or anyone with trouble balancing.
