Amazingly beautiful trail!! Pretty uphill, and lots of rocks, so wear supported shoes! The top was amazing and beautiful place to have a sandwich with friends! Lots of opportunities for pictures, and videos. Two cons: was pretty hot, but went mid day beginning of June, so expected. And SO. MANY. BUGS. Everywhere hitting your face flying in your ear, bring lots of bug spray! The whole trail up they were following us, until the top

Great and challenging hike. Make sure you go early in the morning because the hike has constant incline. The views at the top are breathtaking but it’s totally worth it. It’s definitely one of the more challenging hikes.

This is a great trail! There were definitely many bugs as other users have stated, even with bug repellent. Parking was $10 and no problem on a weekday afternoon. Park hours are currently reduced so check before you go. We did see a rattlesnake on the trail so heed the warnings and be alert.

I was able to do about 2.5 miles into the trail until it was too overgrown. Someone had come through recently and chopped some bushes back, but it was very overgrown after about 2.5 miles.

great steep hike with lots of views. It is definitely hot out there. plus tons of bugs everywhere. bring bug spray!

Great trail! Love the greenery and steady climb to the top. The views at the top are amazing.

A not so crowded hike that I would rate as moderate. We went in the late morning and there was a lot of bugs everywhere.

Did this hike yesterday May 30th and was open and fully functional. I asked the ranger if the trail was cleared and he said yes. Those of you who were waiting for someone to post about the condition of the trail, it's in good condition. Some areas with overgrown grass but easily manageable. I started the hike at 8 am and by noon it was getting warm. I spotted no wildlife, bummer.

Well maintained trail with a very gradual incline all the way up. Great views once up at the top!

A very beautiful trail. Expect for the part going up to Stonewall Peak, the trail is mostly flat, meandering through meadows, woods and a pond. Saw quails, geese, ducks, and wild turkeys. It’s true - the flies there do bite.

This is the most beautiful trail I’ve ever done (the view mainly). The view is breathtaking ! Slight incline all the way but nothing to hard. Rocky here and there. I’m a very slow walker and I did this in roughly 1hr 30 min ! $10 fee at parking lot ! We arrived at 6:45 few cars. By the time we came back (8:15), the lot was full.

5-29-20 Short hike that registers 4.9 but we somehow managed to do 5..12 miles in 3.5 hours. Maybe because we did the five oaks trail there and back as well as stopped at most of the look outs. I started and finished at the road and not trail head. lots of flowers and lizards on the trail. We did see a snake. Not sure what kind. Was not a rattlesnake. I loved all the old oak trees. I believe we saw some redwoods too. Another great hike!
