A great hike with seasonal wildflowers. Mayfair Ranch Trail starting from the staging area in Canada del Oro, up and down the ridge, Longwall Canyon Trail up the hill and continuing along Bald Peaks Trail all the way down to your starting point. On a clear day you will have good views of San Francisco and beyond.

Perfect time to go is Jan, Feb. The trails were so conditioned.

The trail was pretty nice, not too hard but still had some incline. Definitely was pretty hot and dry which made it pretty unpleasant at times. Views were pretty cool. If you only had one day to hike in this area though, this isn’t your hike.

Nice, quiet hike with great views. Everything is so green after the recent rains, and several wildflower species are blooming. I only see a few people each time I hike this trail, so it’s good for solitude.

Pretty good hike in a relatively quiet area. Recent rains made the trail a little interesting in some parts but overall still very walkable. Beautiful views

Moderate hiking trail with elevation ~ 1,860 feet, one will gain 2,436 feet after complete this hike, 9.35 Miles. Commanding views from Bald Peak top with lot of wild flowers along the trail, and not a busy trail.
