The main trail itself is rather short and steep in some sections which provide an elevation gain of 500+ ft (depending where you start). There are several trails throughout the open space to explore and there is also multiple access points to the top. Trail activities include: hiking, walking, trail running, photography, wildflowers, birding, and rock climbing at Turtle Rock.
It's a great hike, and fairly easy trail (though it's quite slippery and muddy the day after rain). The trails are easy to follow and the views are pretty spectacular from the top of each section of the trail - from downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge to San Quentin Prison across the Bay and rolling green hills with rocky outcroppings and wildflowers.
Nice hike but would consider it "moderate" rather than "easy". It's uphill and rocky. Beautiful views from the top.
Great views of the SF and the bay with some impressive rock outcropping and Tam peeking over.
My wife and I went here for an evening hike and it was amazing with a clear day you can see as far as San Francisco and the Oakland Temple. Beautiful trees, rocks to climb and amazing views. Great place to have a picnic!
