Nice hike. Not really kid friendly as some of the trails are SUPER narrow and a steep downhill on the side of the hills. Must be nice after a good rainfall as there is a river you follow as some waterfalls!

Awesome trail! Some areas are a drop off so just be careful if you bring your little fur friend with you. Love that everyone had their dogs off leash (because that means I can too, right?)

Lots of fun and beautiful bridges and little waterfalls, but be aware, this is a challenging hike with lots of slipping hazards. Everybody had their dog off leash, which was awesome for us.

First time trying this trail and I absolutely loved it. You get a beautiful view of all the neat trees and how some are formed, you have the sound of the birds and the water flow. Beautiful lil waterfalls. If you keep going up you see the amazing view of the cities surrounding. Some of the trail is narrow so just be careful on that but this was a great hike and I look forward to going again soon! The place is dog friendly which is a plus because I took my big guy and he enjoyed himself as well

Walk along the creek was very narrow and steep. I was very happy to take the fire road on the way down. Views weren't that exciting; I have a suspicion that the first uploaded pic is not from this hike, but I might be wrong. Panoramic views of east bay at the top.

This trail is in a lovely shaded redwood forest along the creek, waterfalls and in a hidden canyon in an Oakland suburb. The trail is short (2 miles) and relatively flat (591 feet). It is not well kept up and there are not many trail signs, but once you climbed up you would be rewarded with some fantastic views over Oakland and the bay area.
