Lots of long grass, little visability, no view at the summit. Overall not worth it.

Beautiful in the spring! Super green and beautiful wild flowers

Great hike in cooler weather, though I imagine in summer would be quite hot with lack of shade. Be aware that trail is very uneven due to cow traffic. Great views from the top of the ridge.

This is a nice hike if you live in the area due to its convenience. A lot of the trails are uneven due to the cows' hoof prints so it's important to step carefully so you don't sprain an ankle. Nice views of the San Pablo Bay along with all the area peaks (Mt. Tam, Mt. Diablo, Mt. Saint Helena). You can expand your hike by entering Lynch Canyon Open Space Preserve which connects with Newell OSP.

The scenery was great, stopped at the gate though after another hiker warned us of snakes beyond the gate. Hiked 2 miles.

Great trail, with lots of views. You will start sweating early since Skyline Trail has lots of ups early on. Rim Rock is quite a bit of a workout, but you won't find too many people up there, if at all. For an easier loop, cut back at Chaparral. Allow yourself some extra time to sit by the lake and take in the scenery. If you are doing the Rim Rock - there's a few great spots in the shade for lunch.

Awesome views to the southwest including the southern Napa valley, San Pablo Bay, Napa-Sonoma marshes, north bay hills, and Mount Tamalpais. Be aware that cattle grazing is allowed here and there are lots of prickly and thorny bushes in spots along the trail. The north loop trail closes during raptor breeding season. Trailhead had a port-a-potty, but no running water. Nice cool breeze out of the west when there is fog at the coast, but can be hot and exposed in summer.

Bummed that the north trail was closed but an easy uphill hike!

It was a great view. I just didn't like how the road was messed up, but other than that, it's pretty nice.

Gorgeous! Running or hiking. The north side of the loop is closed though so you have to go out and back.

Beautiful in the spring. Rolling green hills. The noise from the creek.
