Quick out and back affording commanding views of Carquinez Strait and San Pablo Bay plus surrounding communities. Park on the street nearby if school is in session.

The first part of the trail is very steep and I would rate it as strenuous. Trail links up with other trails to Benicia Community Park and Lake Herman.

Trailhead is behind the Kindercare business. Trail has no shade, very very hot in the summer. You'll be basically walking up and down the foothills, nice views, though.
