I use this trail everyday, typically I may start from windemere parkway or Tassajara Ridge staging area and complete till piccadilly park and then travel back home, this completes a nice loop, the trail has decent grades, is a bit technical atleast for me on some sections to run, there's plenty of cows grazing but they are harmless, be sure to slow down or halt for a few minutes if you want them to steer away if they are on your way, otherwise just walk around them, they normally protect their calves and are very peaceful; occasionally I have seen a coyote move around the area, many people have seen quite a few, it depends on the time of the day you go. If you like to trail blaze in summers, be careful, this one has no shade, I normally go on astronomical twilights in morning, I travel some distance on windemere parkway and then go to tassajara staging and then travel back down. Totally depends on where you are and what time you go - But this one has no shade. If you are a beginner and want to get into trail running, hiking, this is a great training trail for you. You will get everything here, mostly except for rocky terrain to climb.
