This is one of the best views in all of the Bay area. 360 degree view, from down to the peninsula out to the Golden gate and Bay side, Mount Tam and Marin and over to the delta into the valley East Bay towards Mt. Diablo and beyond. On a clear day you can see forever in all directions. The walk I do is from Inspiration point in Wildcat to Vollmer Peak and takes a minimum of 3 hours.

Awesome trail run, a little rocky, moderately challenging, but absolutely beautiful views on a clear-skied morning. It is perfect for a sunrise hike. We saw a couple deer and only one other person on the trail so early in the morning. Not very shaded if you go on a hot day, but the eucalyptus trees Are plentiful along the trail.

Solid trail with great views. It is open for about half of it (so sunny) and rocky. If starting from the Quarry Trailhead, going up via Seaview trail and coming back via Big Springs trail is the more strenuous route.

Excellent hike with spectacular views. Brought the kids and the dog along too. Great workout on a summer day because it can get quite hot out there. Bring plenty of water and be ready with the camera.

Enjoyed the workout because it's a pretty hot hike on a summer day in peak hours. The view at the top is unbeatable. Really enjoyed the combination of shade and sun throughout the entire trail.

Nice hike. Great micro climates. Good views when it's not foggy, which burned off by 12:30 or so.

Trails are pretty water damaged but it has nice views of the canyons and city (assuming it's not cloudy). Very sunny hike so plan accordingly.

This trail is okay for hiking. It is mainly fire roads, mostly pretty damaged by this years's rain. Looks like it would be better for a runner.
