While the trail itself is a great trail, the attraction of the rocks and boulders is a blast for the kids. We went there the first time when the kids were 3 and 7, and the last time was recently when they are 10 and 13, and they were still just as excited to climb and explore the rocks.

My 3 year old and 8 year old loved this hike.

We took the kids (4 ages 10-1 year) on a beautiful Sunday morning. To start be cautious on the drive up as this is a popular cycling spot for the area. Parking was no problem at around 9:45 AM. The lot did fill up by the time we left though. This is the one of the best family hikes we have been on. It was challenging enough for the older children while still having plenty of rocks for the littles to climb on. Just be sure to do a proper recon as some of the larger rocks do drop off quite a bit. Sentinel Rock is a must for older kids and adults (my 10 year old loved it). The only down side that I can see is that there were not restrooms readily accessible from the parking lot. This is nit picking a bit but still a consideration when bringing kids along. All in all if you are in the East Bay Area I would place this hike at the top of your list.

Awesome- pack a picnic lunch & scramble over rocks with toddlers & kids. Choose your own adventure by exploring short paths or going on a longer trail. Gorgeous views.
