Lots of doggos running wild. But otherwise nice flat trail with lots of shade, would repeat. Easy to get to by bus.

Hidden gem for sure! The uphill isn’t anything too crazy and the view at the top is awesome! I went counter clockwise and got to the view faster but this might make the incline harder. Lots of benches with great views, recommend taking a quick stop at all of them!

Very steep but beautiful views!

Go counter clockwise from Inspiration Point parking lot. We made the mistake of going clockwise and hiked uphill in the sun. Still enjoyable!

nice view at the top got a lil lost halfway super rocky could slip need shoes with grip half shade half sun good fast hike 2 hours running intervals and getting lost for 20 minutes lots of incline

It was a decent trail. It’s great for a quick workout. U have flat land, some steep hills and some small.

NO trail markers, and lots of different paths. Very easy to get off trail. But nice walk, climb, scramble. Definitely moderate, on the hard side. Warm in October midday. I’ll do it again earlier in the day.

My favorite hike in Berkeley!! The views are unmatched, the workout is on point, & the mix of shade & sun is perfection :) You totally earn your post-hike beer after this one ❤️

The hard rating is accurate and well deserved. I had to stop a few times on some of the seemingly never-ending continuous inclines to catch my breath. When I checked my pulse, it was in upper 170s which correlates to highly strenuous physical activity for me. But that's what I like about this trail; it is physically challenging but also equally rewarding with bountiful views of the bay all along the hike. Not to mention the lovely scent of eucalyptus that permeates the air. Also, I hiked it midday Monday and there was plenty of parking along Stonewall and thus very few people on the trail. Overall, an excellent hike. Looking forward to hiking it again, maybe at sunset as other hikers have suggested.

Lake was closed cause of algae but trails ok.

Not my favorite hike in the bay and probably will not do it again anytime soon. The trail is way too rocky and easy to slip if you’re just wearing sneakers. The view is nice but would rather do the Wildcat hike for the same view. Lots of uphill which I don’t mind but the rocks made it very annoying.

This is a very nice hike if you are looking for a peaceful walk surrounded by trees. No views or panoramas but a relaxing hike. You will find a youth campground that provides potable water about halfway through. I recommend this trail!

Trail was a bit confusing, I went too far on sea view and had to turn around to catch a small trail that’s part of loop. The little trail is unmarked, if you blink..you’ll miss it. I really don’t think the little detour is necessary, just loop to big springs trail instead. Beautiful trail and nice hike.

Ok, but not one of my favorites. In early fall, there is not much to see other than the brown, Maybe it would be better in the green of Spring. Walking counter-clockwise, most of the uphill is in the shade while most of the exposed sections were downhill. Clockwise would be the opposite. Not sure I would rate this as "easy". It is not especially difficult, but it is not a flat, wide, simple trail.

Easy trail with a few other hikers. Mostly a wide dirt road the whole way. Dog friendly

The view at the top is spectacular. There’s a perfect picnic spot at the top with a 360 degree view of the bay and San Pablo Reservoir. Shady hike up (if you go counter clockwise) which is always welcome. And we saw a coyote in the middle of the day!!

what a workout. great sunset hike

Mostly a paved trail. Great view at the top but not an impressive trail, especially compared to other nearby trails.

Beautiful views! If you are a hiker it’s not too hard if you have never hike it can be hard for you! But totally worth it!

An easy loop that has lots of flowers in the spring but can be exposed and hot in the summer. It offers a great view of the bay and city from the top.

Great place to bring my pups on a clear, sunny day. Friendly people, happy dogs, beautiful views of the panoramic cityscape and its bridges.

Great hike! The trails are almost all single tracks. Wildcat Peak is a cool spot. Great views of the bay. It was a fun trail run on the way back down the hill.
