it was a good hike and you get a workout, especially with the hill climb. I went clockwise, but I think in the future I'd do it counterclockwise. There was a lot of smoke in the distance because of the fires.

It has a very strong slope, needs to climb up the right side of the mountain. On the left side difficult to climb pedaling.

Great kid friendly LOOP walking trail through the contra loma reservoir, passes the boat launch as well as the swim lagoon and the community park. Great views.

Excellent hiking area. Trails are marked and easy to navigate. Mines are short but cool. Scenic!

This loop was one of the best hikes I have done in a while. I followed the red trail marker and didn’t take any deviations. Didn’t see any cows or cow poop, horse poop was minimal, and even though it was Memorial weekend Saturday, the people were minimal after passing the cemetery. It offered a nice variety of scenery and landscapes, vast views, trail surfaces, history, and several different geological formations and soil types. Although just outside of Antioch, it seemed much more remote. I will do this one again.

Loved everything about it

I wanted to test out my new pack and poles. Nice day for a quick hike. I saw a young rattlesnake and a baby sunning themselves. A few raptors and a coyote in the distance. No cows, but plenty of evidence. Nice views, but think this trail would be prettier when everything is green.

This trail is pretty cool, tulles for miles. If your a bird watcher this is the place to go. Not much shade so bring a hat. Park in the Antioch Marina and walk in.

The trail is mowed and follows the boundary of the park. The ground is dry and cracked, so watch your step. Saw a couple of turkeys under a tree (not many around here). This is a good beginner trail, but nothing remarkable about it.

Not well maintained. Hiking through tall weeds, uneven ground and not well defined.

I wouldn't recommend any of the trails in this park for mountain biking.

This trail is basically just a ride along a fence in a cattle pasture.... If you even want to call it a trail. There was no cut trail. It was bumpy cattle tracks and uncut grass.

This is a beautiful wetland trail. We did not see otters on our trip but did encounter a seal. There is parking available at the Antioch Marina and a connector path to the Dow wetlands trails from there.

Nice, easy stroll or good running location. I've taken my dog, she loves it! Lots of people and most people say hello. There's fishing here and some other water activities I haven't done. Parking is free off Frederick's Lane but is limited so something like 30-40 cars so come early. It's a great local place to get outdoors and enjoy!

This was a nice hike and if I lived in the area I'd do it often, but it wasn't worth the 45-minute drive. There were tons of very cute cows blocking our trail and the recent rains combined with the cow hoofprints made it a muddy and uneven (but fun) experience. This is definitely a hike to do in winter and early spring as there is no shade and Antioch gets pretty hot in the summer/fall.

Great views!

Very scenic, you will not be disappointed! I love that I can bring my dog with me up there. I would bring a lunch and sit by the edge to enjoy the view for a few minutes before my trek back down. Bring good hiking shoes for grips....the path vary from smooth to rocky and uneven.

This is a great little haven to explore. It's easy to walk and connects to the marina with a beautiful bridged path. We love taking our daughter there to see the river otters and beavers.

So beautiful!!!!!

Spent most of the time looking down to avoid cow pies and holes. Saw lots of cows, ground squirrels, a jack rabbit, hawk and an egret. Not a very scenic hike.

Some steep parts but nothing to bad. Good trail for the pups and the cemetery is neat!

Basically a Hugh cow pasture. Trail follows the perimeter fence all the way around. It was great too be near the cows. However the ground was very dry with high cracks. Not fun too walk on.

Enjoyed this hike! Definitely has a few areas where you can go where it can be more challenging or easier depending on what you are looking for. Awesome place for pups! Only negatory would be the very few shade spots.
