Immediate surroundings were nice but the sound of traffic and powerlines in some areas detracted from the experience. Also Oursan trail near the spillway was not clearly marked.

Nice little trail I always did along with other trails. Very shady and can be done any time. It drops off Bear creek with a little drop in elevation and is almost entirely in the shade.. The 1st right is a trail that goes up to Briones res. A little farther up towards San Pablo on a day I was solo I got within 10' of a half dozen deer. Memorable day...
