Hiked on Tuesday 8/1/2017 at 5pm and ended around 630pm with a total of around 4 miles... it was hot and very little shade...
Very little traffic , i hiked alone and I saw only two people . Lots of lizards and quails! Lots of bushes and burned trees. It's a recovering area from a fire. The difficulty is about 3/10 with one area pretty steep. Its a boring trail but good for the area. The area near the waterfall has overground bushes that cover the trail. The waterfall at this time of the year is nonexistent. It's was disappointing actually. The best part was essentially the overview area of the hills. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it unless you want to get some exercise.

Pros: little to no traffic, exercise , parking
Cons: boring, no shade, no waterfall
Rating: 2/10
Notes: no dogs on waterfall trail, no bikes on waterfall trail, no hike alone, trails splits to other areas

It was a great hike we took the hidden valley overlook trail. We did try to use the hidden valley connector but 1/2 way in there was a large swarm of bees overhead so we had to double back and stay on the main path. There are a lot of options in the direction you can travel it was a lot of fun!

Great warm day for a hike. Those who usually hike on nearly level ground will find a couple of these hills to be challenging but give them a try because the trail on the other side is nice and isolated for suburbia sprawl.

Get out to Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa as the wildflowers are really coming out. Nice patches of Califormia Poppy with a few Parrys Phacelia mixed in. A good place to see the poppies is along the Old Boney Trail and Hidden Valley Trail parallel to the Satwiwa Loop Trail.

Amazing! The views were awesome and it's beautiful. Another good part is its clean and there isn't trash everywhere. Also IT IS DOG FRIENDLY!!! another thing is for this app its directions will take you straight to the Wendy trail and around a housing area but go to the main entrance instead because you can't park in the housing area.

It's basically in my backyard, and it's a nice hike any time of year. The trail networks until literally dozens of other trails for mountain biking, running or just checking out the wildlife. It can be a little "snakey" the summer months, so watch the kids
