The most beautiful hiking spot and the best so far that I have completed 20 Trails this month and nothing beats this .

Strenuous hike, like a stair master for most of the way up. Views are great up top. If you bring you dog check for Tics. We brought our dog and he had quite a few tics on him when we got back to the car.

This trail is all fire road. Some decent views at the top. An electric cable on top of rocky ridge is somewhat strange and disappointing.

From the beginning, get ready for the ascent. It definitely pays off 2 miles into the hike. Rated as difficult, it was definitely harder than Mission Peak, IMHO.

From Del Valle to Rose peak, it's part of the Ohlone wilderness trail.

First of all, this hike does not take you any further up the Ohlone Trail then OT-38 which is at the Ohlone Trail/Rocky Ridge Trail junction. I hiked this on 12/25/18. The only difference from the map is that I hiked the loop section counterclockwise. There are three fallen trees on the Stromer Spring Rd part of the hike but it was not too difficult to get around/over them. Overall, a decent workout with several intense uphills and gorgeous views. The Rocky Ridge Trail has some interesting geology

this trail has some strong incline and is not very forgiving, especially at the beginning. but its very nice layout, well marked and offers decent shade and views along the way. this specific trail is often getting confused with the full trail, even in these comments. however, thus portion is great for quick training or a nice 3 hour hike.

The highlighted loop does not cover Murietta falls. Great hike, definitely a challenging one, no human traffic. All trails map is very helpful, however the markers aren't in all trails so could literally lose the forest for the trails. Watch out for parking the car where they don't close the gate at 4 pm.

One of the toughest hikes I've done. Started from Del Valle and made it to Murrieta Falls. I would recommend it! be ready for a tough hike, there are sections that are very steep, all my leg muscles were burning but the day was cloudy and cool so it wasn't terrible. The place is well maintained, and it is worth the price, if you start from del valle the park charges 5 dollars each permit.

Some long hard up hills but I wouldn't do the round about again just stay to left at the fork and make your way to the waterfall instead 5 miles one way I think

On April 30, 2016, we hiked from Del Valle to Sonul for 20 miles. The view on the east of Rose Peak is better than that on the west. The east side also has more shade. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked.

This was a hard hike. A lot of uphill. It was not shaded and would be warm in summer. The view was pretty though, and a nice trail!
