Definitely agree counter clockwise is better for the knees. I would rather go up tough rocky areas than come down. Busy with eunners and hikers over first third with fantastic views from the beginning. Section near main road not well marked and over grown. Middle third was mostly easy fire road wide and packed dirt. I saw a few runners and hikers. Last third was pretty easy and I would rather go down wooden steps than rocky crevices. Proofed this old 60+ got can still handle it. I went for this birthday hike for that reason. Fantastic views

Time of hike: morning, early January Overall great route. It’s a mix of sunny and shady / windy, so bring some layers and sunglasses / hat. You get some gorgeous views of both the bay and the reservoirs and hills on the east. Super muddy through Wildcat Gorge, but Seaview, Quarry, and Lower Big Springs we’re mostly dry. Breaks: there are a few benches along the way, but the first stop with more amenities (bathroom, picnic tables) is the Lone Oak picnic area. After that there’s also space near Lake Anza. Time: at about 2-2.5 miles per hour, with some breaks, took me about 3.5 hours

Pretty and relaxing trail! Super muddy. Would recommend for everyone!

Super dog friendly, fantastic views.

beautiful hike, lots of doggo

Solid hike. V muddy so come prepared with shoes you don’t mind destroying. Be sure to go counter clockwise. Good for dogs

Great workout plus great views but didnt see any restrooms.

Cool hike so close to Oakland and especially Berkeley. Not too hard, so you can take your friends that may not be up for something intense, but still some good elevation gain. The main attraction of this is the many great views on Seaview Trail. At one point we had great views of SF and the Golden Gate Bridge to our left, and great views of Orinda, Pittsburg, and the San Pablo and Briones Reservoirs to our right. At other points you can see Mt Diablo, Richmond, Mt Tamalpias, etc. Be sure to go on a clear day! There were plenty of cars in the lot, but still a handful of spots when I showed up (~1:30 PM on a sunny Sunday in January). Oh also there's a cool lil labyrinth at the top.

Great views, mostly easy but a few difficult parts due to extremely muddy inclines/declines

good for dogs off leash; a little muddy

What a beautiful trail. I only went half way through. It was fairly crowded, lots and lots of hikers on the trail. But the views were just gorgeous. Very dog friendly place. My dog isn't always the best when it comes to other dogs so we left early but if your dogs well socialized this would be a wonderful place to bring them! All in all nice hike. For sure a moderate trail some sweet inclines.

Part of the trail was closed so it was very short but beautiful. There’s an amazing creek that has a “waterfall” where I set up camp to read. Beautiful and relaxing little hike.

Came for a new years hike with our toddler and had to turn back on the creekside potion of the trail because it was just way too muddy. Looking forward to coming back when things are a little drier :)
