This is my favorite little hike. The incline really gets the heart going, but once you get to the magical bench, you can really rest and take it all in. After that it's pretty much downhill through a nice quiet forest section.

Did this lovely trail with my baby in a backpack and my two dogs. Nice incline that makes for a perfect little workout. Beautiful views of the reservoir and a shady wooded path the second half of the trail. You will likely have the trail to yourself most of the time. Dogs are actually allowed off leash.

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.
