This was pretty fun. The walk up is pretty steep and strenuous, but once you get to the highest point it's all easy from there. It may be a little hard for kids, with the steep hills. I wish once you got to the top there was more trails to see more of the dam, but it is better than nothing. We had a great time. seen some small lizards and thankfully no rattlesnakes, although there are many signs for them.

I started on the Kennedy Creek Trail, continued onto the Black Oak Trail loop, on the way back I climbed the Upper Seafoam Trail and went down on the Lower Seafoam Trail and then I took the Laurel Loop Trail. For a total distance of 3.3 miles with elevation of 833 feet. It was short but intense. There was few muddy spots on the trails. It was a good workout and some scenery on the top with the view of the San Pablo Reservoir. At this time of year the parking was free. From April to October there is a parking fee for $5.
