This was a pretty good workout!! I was planning on doing this alone, but glad I didn’t. There were3 gates that had to be hopped over in order to follow the route. It always makes me wonder if I’m doing something I shouldn’t. There was not as much for views as I was hoping. Lots of cows to look at adjacent to Black Diamond Way. I think there are probably better hikes to take. I gave it 3 stars for lack of a true trail because of the gates and the lack of scenery.

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.

Gorgeous scenery, varied foliage and flowers, and some beautiful rock paths. Great plant scents and grand vistas...even cows! An enjoyable spring hike.

Beautiful view especially at the beginning couple of miles. Going up the rose hill for a panoramic view of the rolling hills.

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

Great trail to do especially in spring or winter... Too hot and dry in summer.

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.

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!

Great view from up here!!

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.

Did see a coyote on this trail. Not as well marked as other trails, but still a nice hike!

overall good but long day if you bring the kiddos. our little one, 8yrs had a couple break downs due to the heat but we ended up back at the car finishing 6.75 miles. Got a tad lost in the beginning, the trail wasn't clearly marked at the start. Nice views, would do again.

this was an ok hike..no scenery until you get to the other side of the mountain. over all good.
