I really enjoyed this hike. Starting off in a beautiful wooded area and then moving into an open hilly scene was lovely. Very dog and horse friendly; my canine might've enjoyed it more than we did. More than half of the hike was in direct sunlight, so bring extra sunscreen. Make sure you go off onto the side trail on the way back to get a great view of Mount Diablo!

Pretty simple hike that doesn't get that much use. Spring would be best for wildflowers. Uneventful enough so that I never did it a second time.

Nice hike... I like that I could bring my dog. I'd definitely do this hike again. It says 4.7 miles but my GPS said it was a little over 5 miles....

Biked this yesterday with a buddy for his first MTB ride mainly because its relatively easy. As Tariq states, there are areas that can be dangerous. Meaning, due to the dry climate and lack of rain it is quite parched. A lot of sand on the trails which can cause a serious fall. Take it easy and get familiar and once you do you will find this a great moderate MTB ride good for beginners. There are few hard climbs but lots of flats and areas to rest your legs without stoping your bike. It is open grazing range so be prepared to come face to face with harmless docile cattle. Take lots of water and maybe a few snacks and enjoy!

Went for a 10'ish mile hike around the entire perimiter with a friend on a 90-degree day. While not real difficult, there is an illusion of always going uphill. I think this stems from the fact that the downhills are gentle slopers and the uphills are fairly steep (but not real bad). All in all, you feel like you're always going uphill. Keep in mind that this is just the perimeter trail. I have never hiked any of the internal trails (yet). A bit of a yawner except that it was 10 miles so gave me and a buddy a good workout!

There are some very nice views out towards the delta valley and sacramento valley(?). You can also view Mt. Diablo which is pretty close to here.
