Didn't hike this today as 2 mountain loins were spotted 2 days in a row on the trail. Stay alert and stay safe if you go!

Nice trail. Wide paved road for a portion, some single track trail once you get to the Mori Trail intersection. Lovely views, easy to keep appropriate physical distance. Lots of cute dogs.

Wide paved trail up most of the time. No need for a hiking shoes, it’s clean and neat.

This was a great choice for my first hike using this App. The entire hike of about 5 miles was on a paved path. The weather couldn’t have been any more perfect. There are great views when you reach the top. The incline was pretty steep at times so even though the level is “Easy” that is something to be aware of. I would definitely do this hike again.

Great views of the entire peninsula and bay!

dog friendly. Paved for much of it. I detoured toward Farrallones view on a dirt trail with great views of the ocean.

Paved trail with some steep climbs. Great views of San Andreas lake and SF bay, but only on a clear day when Karl the fog isn't blowing through. Layer up since it's cold &windy at the top. Nike missile site was demolished April 2019, so not much to see there anymore. A nice little walk overall though.

Not my favorite Bay Area hike. The first part of this trail was, even behind the gates, black top. The rest was all fire roads. The “trail” is very exposed with minimal shade. The best part was the views of the sea. The bay side view overlooked urban centers; I prefer to have views of nature when I hike. Do not attempt the side trail we took back to the Sneath Lane trail head. The trail is not maintained and soon after hiking down looked less like a trail until there was no trail at all. We had to bush whack our way to the road and then slip through some barbed wire fencing.

Nice paved trail mostly up hill and then it flat, beautiful scenery of the bay and ocean. Not difficult. Saw lots of people with their dogs.
