Nice hike with no wind and sunny sky’s yesterday. Great views of South Bay and hills layered in clouds. Not crowded. Need to share with mountain bikers. Some occasional picnic tables. No mud. No water

Great hike to get away for the day. Easy parking. A few ascents that might leave you huffing and puffing a bit but worth it. The views looking north towards San Jose are excellent from the top of Baldy Peak. It’s a short hike up from the main trail. Don’t miss it! Varied terrain and flora. Highly recommended for those graduating from easy to moderate hikes.

Very nice hike! It was really hot so it was a bit challenging but worth it. There are trees here and there letting you breath in the shadow. We saw birds, butterflies and a vulture.
