It was a decent trail. It’s great for a quick workout. U have flat land, some steep hills and some small.

All trails displays trails on the map that are closed off, on private property. For the trails that exist in the public (park) property, most singletrack is closed to bikes. Cow pasture trails where you can actually bike are rutted out.

Beautiful! It does not feel like you are anywhere near the hustle of the Bay Area. Views of the San Pablo reservoir and the hills of CA. Went in the morning on a weekday in the summer and it wasn’t crowded. Completely paved trail.

We really enjoyed the paved trail. Good condition for biking. It has some 2-3 steep areas but relatively leveled and great scenic views.

Paved on Nimitz Trail, busy, strollers,kids, bikes. Offshoots are dirt and no bikes. Went out to Old Nike Missile Site, 4.1 mi, goes out further.

Great Sunday hike. Was a fairly flat and 90% paved trail that goes through a cow pasture. It was pretty awe inducing to see calf and cattle just off the edge of the trail grazing. Add that to a gorgeous sunset over the Pacific Ocean, and straight on views of the Golden Gate bridge across the bay, and you have the recipe for a fantastic hike.
