loved it so peaceful

Loved this trail! The tunnel is amazing! Definitely worth a stop to explore and look at the tunnel walls. We even saw tiny frog in the cave. Wouldn’t rate this hard though, probably higher end of moderate.

We looped this hike by staying on Stewartsville Trail and added a bit more to the hike. We finished the day at 8 miles.

Another great park with good trail for walking. Sometimes too many people on the trail, but that is just a sign of it’s popularity.

Great for walking and enjoying the wildlife as well as the tranquil. I live in Antioch and did not know about this Wildlife preserve being just 20 minutes from my home. I do now and visit it at least once a week.

I only hike once a week and I felt this hike should be rated as moderate instead of hard. It starts of with several inclines for the first 2 miles after that it’s pretty easy. What I like about the hike is there are 2 caves you get to see on the way, as well as an amazing panoramic view of the city that no photo can explain. The trail does get narrow at times. Can be difficult for pets and young kids.

Haven’t hiked in so long and it felt great. Not a lot of people on the trails so it was nice to be able to pace myself good. The view from the tops of the mountain was breath taking. Can’t wait for my next adventure.

We enjoyed this 1.5 hour level hike around the lake. The oaks, rolling foothills, shaded picnic areas, bird wildlife on the lake provided a beautiful setting. No heavy foot traffic today since it's off season for swimming.

These two trails are fire roads. Lots of runners, bikers, and a few hikers. Once you get out a couple of miles, it becomes nice and quiet. There is very little shade, so do this in the spring/fall and take water.

The trail is very pretty on the backside. Once you make it up Stewartville trail to the junction of Ridge trail, turn around and look at Mt Diablo - what a beautiful sight! There is a nice little bench there to sit and look at the beauty and cool down.

I saw crows, hawks, and one long eared rabbit.

There is a ton of dog poop all over the trails. I wish East Bay parks would just ban all dogs off the trails. I am a responsible dog owner and still saying this because it is unhealthy for human and dog alike to be around a lot of dog poop. If you don't want to carry your dogs poop around the trail with you in a bag, then don't take your dog. Take some responsibility and give respect to the trails and those that use them.

What can I say about this hike? Amazing views, history and elevation galore! Will do it again!

Decent hike..a lot drier than I had anticipated but normal for this time of year. Not a hike you want to take on a hotter day as there is not a ton of shade to rest along the way

We always start from the bottom of the hill on the community park side. I love all the wildlife and animals. Sometimes we go up to both hills. A family favorite

Nice level walk with beautiful scenery. Great for puppy too.

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.

Great hike. Definitely moderate if you’re just doing Miners Trail. If you add in the Corcoran Trail the difficulty and work out goes up.

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.

Various trails at this park

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!

Loved this trail, very clean. Lots of beautiful scenery and very interesting hike!
Would not come here on a hot day, not a lot of shade.

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.
