Good trails for all levels. You can keep it super easy by just going to Japanese Gardens or walking around the pond. If you are ok with some incline, the trails are great with beautiful views. We love it for our family - we end it with the big grassy bowl area where we can picnic or throw around a frisbee. I love the improvements they’ve made the last few years. Good signage and nice and clean park area.

Took the 9 mile loop in clockwise rotation. Found nice big log crossing about 500 ft upstream of trail crossing. Backtracked to the trail and continued through the forest to the small lake or pond. After that the trail continued and was a little sketchy in places but made sure I could see a piece of trail ahead before leaving it behind. Four or so major deadfall trees fell across the trail but was always able to hook up with it on the other side. The last deadfall before the hill fell parallel and on top of the trail so that was a little more challenging to trace. Once we made it to the hill climb there were no more deadfall. Down the other side of the hill there was a logging operation that tore up the trail. Trail continues to the left at the bottom of the disturbed area. From the it's smooth sailing to Caples Creek which is magnificent at this time. We clocked 10 miles so not sure about 9.1 on the app. Tough and challenging hike but beauty all around. The fire was prescribed last year to clear undergrowth and allow sunlight to the forest floor.

Easy, fire road, lots of bugs, not a ton of shade. If you’re bringing your pooch make sure you go in the morning so they don’t overheat!

This hike is very nice. Not a lot of bugs. Most of the hike was in the shade. The weather was amazing! It was actually 9.3 miles to the look out. The look out was closed but the view was still amazing.

Street side parking is free. Parking lot is $10. Id definitely park and walk down to the bridge and start there! Hike can be quite slippery, so be careful! I honestly just walked a little up until I saw an easy slope down the water. Then walked barefoot up the stream and waterfall. The water can be deeper than it looks so caution where you dip your feet haha.

Super easy hike! Takes about 10-15 minutes. Did this in sandals. You can start right from the parking lot. There are some trees/logs that fell down. You get a beautiful view of Bass Lake. If you go up the road, be sure to check out the waterfall (willow creek) on the other side of the lake. Street side parking is free. Parking lot is $10 for willow creek. If you go down the road, you can see the Bass Lake Dam! Free. Just drive up and see it.

The road to the trailhead is pretty bumpy and I had to move a few large rocks out of the road along the way. We took a few wrong turns, it isn’t that well marked. One of the road signs we found tore down on the side of the road. The location on alltrails is correct but Apple maps will take you the wrong way. Once you get close, you want to go to the left up the switchback road and the last half mile or so probably isn’t suitable for low clearance vehicles. The trailhead however was marked and the trail was beautiful and I thought it was fairly easy. There were hundreds of California Pitcher Plants growing in a meadow and the water at the lake was warm enough to swim in in the first week of June. Perfect day hike or if your looking for something a little easier than other Trinity hikes.

This was a beautiful hike but a lot longer than the 7.1 miles that was indicated. Our mileage was over 9 miles. Would definitely recommend downloading the map and using GPS as it is easy to lose the trail. It’s probably a week or two until wildflowers bloom but it was pretty with patches of snow in the green meadows. Both Granite and Hidden lakes are beautiful.

Fun hike. Was expecting a little more waterfall at the end. It was more like a creek fall. Was longer than 7 miles, I think we ended up about 11 miles in the end. Had a great time getting away with friends.

Amazing trail. A bit confusing at times but luckily a local helped us to the most epic view. Didn’t even finish the actual hike bc what we found was 100% cooler. Highly recommend. Definitely free climb some big rocks to get a bit higher. Try to go on a clear day. Clouds may change the view a bit - but will still be great.

This one was super scenic and it challenges you a bit! Also some parts are shady, some parts aren’t. Would def go again!

I imagine this used to be a beautiful place. The water is dirty, quite a few homeless people.

Absolutely beautiful!! Lots of other little areas to explore.. plenty of shade and the wild flowers are starting to bloom. The swing is..incredible.. the joy it brought I cannot explain. Will definitely go back!

Since I picked a cloudy/drizzly day to do this, there were no views from the summit early. Clouds started to clear on the return hike around 9:30am. Ran into about 20 people on a Friday morning, and social distancing was pretty well-maintained. Restrooms were open and recently cleaned. As others have stated, this is a tough hike with severe inclines and should only be attempted with proper fitness and supplies (especially water). I recommend hiking poles to help save your knees on the steep downhills.

I enjoyed this trail. You can hike, bike and even bring ur pet (on a leash). There’s two parking lots ($5) and there’s portable toilets at the beginning of the trail and towards the middle. As of today June 2020, masks are required. U can take it off and only put it on when around strangers or at the parking lot. I’d suggest that if u plan on bringing music. Wear headphones as a courtesy to others who hike to enjoy nature and its sounds.

Great hike, challenging but rewarding! Lots of varied terrain and elevation gain with beautiful views of Mt. Diablo. A few other reviews mention not taking the trail that says “point of no return.” When you get there, it’s blocked off by a locked gate. As you might be able to see on my recording, we went that way anyway— didn’t want to stray from the map! But we ended up on private property, and got a little lost since nothing was very well marked. We went off-trail and uphill since we couldn’t find the correct trail. We are experienced hikers, so we weren’t worried, but I’m not really sure why this map has you go through private property; I would go a different direction. Otherwise, amazing hike!

There’s still plenty of snow up top, but the summit is reachable. Beautiful views up top. Keep your eyes peeled for the big Native American grinding stone near the peak.
