HikingGreat!

The trail is well maintained and well marked. It has a nice view on the top as well as on the way up. The trail is partial shady. It is a little bit too short, So I added the valley of the moon trail.

Switch backs up to the top, great view when you get there! My recording actually showed 3000+ ft gain, I’m not sure how these things work

Hot day. Partly shaded. Made this into a loop by adding Valley of the Moon trail and circling back through a frequently used but unauthorized section. See my recording. About 4 miles for the loop

Great trail. It starts off with a moderate hill but do not despair, it levels of to a very slight incline most of the way. It’s mostly in the woods so it’s cool even in the late morning. Some big rocks - not the kind you will slide on but the kind that you can stump your toe. Good hiking shoe is recommended. It really is a trail and not an unpaved road Great trail for cross country athletes but watch you steps for the rocks I I mentioned earlier during the first quarter mile. I did the loop twice. First time I enjoyed the scenery. The second time I hiked it more aggressively to get a workout. Trail rating 5 Scenery. 3.5. Valley view is nice but not awe inspiring

Well maintained trail, a few rocky spots and well-formed steps but mostly it's an easy and solid trail. Some traffic on the weekends but not too much. This trail is pretty much what you expect from the other reviews and descriptions. A very nice view from up top!

Nice hike but a little rocky for gym shoes. part of the trail is closed but there's an easy detour and it's closure from the top is well marked. (didn't notice we were off the original trail bc we didn't see the cutoff going up) Nice views of Sonoma. partly shaded partly not.
