Some good up and down climbs on the ridge trail. The second half (think we came back on the Wildcat Creek trail) wasn't great, it's basically a road. Next time I would go out and back on the ridge trail to do the climbs twice. Better workout and better scenery. As other reviewers noted, the ridge trail is very exposed and not much shade so early is best and bring lots of water. The ~7 mile loop took us ~3.5 hours.

Decent views on a clear day with some good climbs and a lot of wide open space. Wasn't good enough to do more than once.

Trails were decent for going through cow pastures. The scenery was ok, you could see the Golden Gate Bridge and the Richmond San Rafael Bridge and also see Richmond and El Sobrante. However it did have some really good hills which worked the legs real good. I gave it four stars for a good work out but 2.5 for the scenic view.
