Accidentally did the loop backwards. We still loved the views & the crazy hills(excellent workout)! There are two different locations with sets of benches to take a pit stop(I marked one on me recording). Also, there is a portable restroom at about the half way mark.

Go early in the day; little to no shade. We went at 7 am and had clouds, so weather was perfect. Enjoyed going counter clockwise as there were more inclines at the beginning and it was a little flatter with some shade on the way back. Bring lots of water. Don't think I would hike this during the summer months.

Hiked this 9.53 mile trail Thurs. May 14th, 2020 with two friends. There were many cars at the street parking trail head but we did not see many people on the trail we were on. There are so many options here, so we were glad for the isolation. Parking is free, be mindful of the street signs. Would not be fun to return to car with a ticket. Hills are plentiful and still very green in many areas. Some areas are fully dry. We hiked 9.53 miles of fun. Bring at least 3L of water, energy fueling snacks and a camera. Enjoy this beauty.

Many trails overgrown but still passable. I had to bushwhack with my poles a lot. Telegraph is nice right now with the big trees and babbling brook.

Great hike thru overgrown thistle and mustard plants. Saw lots of wildlife; including 2 beehives on thistle plants, rattlesnake, tons of lizards, beetles, butterflies, rabbits, hawks. Lots of scat on the trail. Nice table with gazebo at 4 trails about 1/2 point if you do the steep side first.

Great trail, stated counter clockwise to get the approx 1000 ft elevation gain behind me first. Lots of snakes, rattlers, today almost stepping on the first one hiding on the rolled mustard plant stems from utility trucks. He was a big guy, the next two were much smaller. I was working the trail hard wearing sunglasses, took them off and slowed after the first very close engagement. I watched the trail very carefully afterwards until it opened back up. Be careful out there and on alert!

Amazing hike as always. I recommend going counterclockwise and get the challenging part over with during the first few miles.

Hard dirt trail with 2 tiny creek crossings that you can hop over. Hill is pleasant 3 mile uphill with excellent good views the whole way up, the next 5 miles are occasionally shaded by trees and have no views. Bikes go through here constantly so be advised that you need to be cautious around some corners to not get hit.
