Awesome Trail.

Very clean bathrooms but has no shade and some steep up hill that can be a bit treacherous for a non-experienced biker.

lovely morning walk, super calm and nice before the heat of the day

Love this trail!!! It’s both shady, and not. Uphill, downhill, and flat, making it an ideal run. The road can be pretty bumpy in places, making stroller running a little difficult for baby at times... but it’s overall a comfortable ride. This trail can be kinda creepy. I never noticed how desolate and scary it is until today... I think it’s a good idea to bring some kind of protection because once your mind starts to wander, you’ll get uncomfortably anxious pretty quick. I have overheated out here a few times, the dry grass and hot pavement really take a toll during the last couple of miles where there are no trees, so bring water!

I used to run this trail daily, nice easy 5k run. It can be pretty busy with oblivious walkers and families, making it a little difficult to run at times, but everyone seems to be very friendly. I’ve ran into more dogs off leashes here than any other trail, and that can be a serious danger to runners (dogs chase running objects). Since running with my stroller I’ve come here less often, far too bumpy for baby to enjoy. However, we will sometimes run from the parking lot at the top of the hill to the pool and back, the hills make it fun and challenging (despite the short length)

This used to be my favorite trail! There’s the “hidden” trail behind the water trail... you have to walk off the path and through the grass to find it, but once you do, you won’t be disappointed! The only reason I took a star away is because they closed off the “hidden” trail to bikes and strollers. I guess it makes sense because it’s not exactly a smooth trail once you get to the preserve.

I enjoyed this hike though a good portion is on a fire trail. Cool sights but a bit overgrown on deer trails in a few spots. A few neat spots to stop and take in some views. Star mine is on the loop portion. Would recommend.

Best views of the 4 Black Diamond trails I've hiked. Some pretty steep spots, had to walk the bike for a mile or so, uphill. 80-someghing degrees.. some shade and mosty good breeze. Take plenty of water. 3 hours to hike, with some time out for the panoramic views of the Delta.

I don't think I would call this one easy. Definitely more of a moderate hike

Great views from the top. The delta and the foothills. Enough shade plus some really steep sections. Good morning hike, best way to get in a few hours of exercise.

Great hike. Challenging and lots of incline. Some of the trails are small. We saw turkey, a snake and many butterflies. There was a decent amount of shade. We came on a hot day around 90 degrees and we were so happy that a lot of it was with some shade.

I enjoyed this hike. The start was a little rough for me, but after that it was fine. Really nice views of the valley!

Well, for some reason I found the Corcoran segment of this trail HARD. Maybe the heat. It was 100 this morning, or just a rough day but overall a great hike - loved walking down Miner’s trail into the broad valley and many bird sitings in the morning - my favorite being the unexpected great blue herons near one of the ponds! I do recommend this hike for the FIT - I thought I was until that strait up stretch of trail

We did this walk in July and the grasses were very dry and lots of foxtails and other pokey seeds. Our dogs didn’t enjoy the trail like he usually does. We had stop frequently and take pokey out of his paws.

I did this in late July and it was hot, dry, and brown. A lot of this hike feels like forest roads, rather than trails. And there are lots of climbs. I'm not a big fan of climbing on forest roads and it felt like a slog. In spring, when it's green and not as hot, it might be worthwhile checking out.

When you start you have two options. Going left: shade in the beginning. Walking is easy but then the hills start and you might slowly die.... then it’s easy but you’re walking the sun. Going right: have a lot of sun, go up the hill (it isn’t as steep as coming the other way) but you get shade towards the end of the walk. I’m glad I went left though.

Glad I went first thing in the morning because it's supposed to be in the upper 90s today. Those hills are pretty brutal, but still fun.
