Description
Waypoints (0)

There's a sharp uphill hike in the beginning. Once you pass that, it's combination of mild uphill and downhill. In few areas, the trail passes through neighborhood and crosses the streets. At the vista point (Nob Hill), there are trails that go to Masie's Peak and can connect you to Steven's Canyon trail.

About 25-35% is just walking through a stupidly wealthy neighborhood. If having the 1% flaunt their wealth is your idea of a great hike, then this is the hike for you!

Very good point to view the landscape of south bay. Proper distances for hiking around 2.5 hours.

Missed the actual entrance to the trail the way its depicted and ended up doing it backward accidentally, I'm actually fine with that as that final hill (or first hill depending on how you do it) is a monster. I would not want to have to come down it if it were slippery though. Great views at the top and shade is fairly easy to find if you need it along the way. Download the map and follow along as the trails are not actually all that well marked. At one point I took a wrong turn in one of the neighborhoods and ended up having to backtrack up a steep street to get back on track. GPS tracking fell on its face, unfortunately, somehow insisting that I had walked twenty or so miles of my 4.5 mile hike solely in the parking lot of the country club. At one point it showed my position as somewhere in the middle of downtown San Jose. Gave up trying after that.

Enjoyed this hike on a cool, cloudy day. Part of the hike goes through residential areas with some beautiful homes. I am not the biggest fan of hiking on concrete roads but it’s not too long a patch

HikingGreat!

This was a great trail!! It’s a little weird because there’s a mixture of neighborhood and woods. It’s the perfect amount of strenuous and the views at the top are amazing!

Walking from paths in the trees to balancing on the sidewalk, there are spots where you need to walk through neighborhoods. Good trail markings, never felt lost!
