Very pleasant trail! Enough shade throughout the trail, with hikers on both directions. All the hikers were wearing theirs masks and kept a safe distance. Many people on a Sunday. Did it after a visit to the UC Botanical Garden, that I highly recommend!!

HikingGreat!

A very beautiful trail with views of the Bay and UC Berkeley. A steep incline at the start of the trail but then a fairly flat walk mostly in the shade.

HikingGreat!

Great hiking trail! Started at Claremont entrance & finished at Science Blg on Berkeley campus; RT was 7.46 miles. Awesome views of SF, bridges & bay. Lightly traveled today but I imagine that on weekends it gets busy. Rated moderate and that seemed accurate. Check it out if you’re in the area!

Offers a great view of the Bay, mellow uphill climbing and mostly shaded . There was only a small portion that was hilly.

Awesome trail with excellent views of the Oakland and Berkeley skyline with the San Francisco Bay in the backdrop and San Francisco city and the Golden Gate Bridge beyond.

RunningGreat!

It’s a good trail for running and walking. It’s well paved and you just cannot get lost. Ascent is steady but not hard for the first half of the 7+ mile trip and a fast descent going back. There is quite a number of hikers and runners, who were all very cautious with their face coverings when approaching other hikers.

HikingGreat!

Great trail! I hike/walk relatively frequently and it took me under 2 1/2 hrs, including a water break at the end and stopping to obsessively take pictures of my dog. Steady incline for the first 1/3 or so of the trail with one steeper hill towards the beginning. Nice wide trail, great views, not too crowded on an early Friday afternoon. Lots of off leash pups!
