Good amount of shade and sun- a climate for everyone! Nice steady incline up and careful footing on the way back down. Did it wearing a baby, and gave me a nice challenge while staying upright.

Hiked up 12/31/17. Parking lot is small. Pleasantly cool around 4pm. Steady incline for the entire 0.9 mile. Views are nice but blocked by trees. Mary Davey Loop trail at the top is a nice mostly level 0.6 mile warm down loop.

Lots of exercise in a short climb! Hard to get parking but less people than the main entrance of the Rancho

Mostly boring walk on road constantly going up, with occasional excellent views.

This trail links with the San Antonio trail. It has a few steep climbs but well worth the effort. The panoramic views are fantastic. On a clear day you can see the City and the east bay. Even without the views this is a great trail. San Antonio can get crowded with people and baby strollers. You won't find this here. If you want to walk with your earphones on and not have to deal with walking around people, then this is the place. Parking is a challenge though.
