Did this trail a few weeks ago. Great hike. Was a challenging first moderate hike for me. It was super crowded, but still had a good time

Nice views but some areas of the trail are very steep and gravelly (unstable) and there’s minimal shade so it’s very hot on warm days. Brings lots of water/sun protection.

Can I just say this is a hidden gem for mtn biking? The climb is challenging (then again I hate climbing), but even I can climb with 2 stops in between. Not that grueling... I just climb in granny gear for the most part. But the decent, although short, is the super super fun part. If you like smashing rocks, then you will love Brushy Peak.

Great for moderate hikers., not too strenuous. Takes good 2 & half hours to complete this Trail. I like to do anti-clock wise loop, since it has a steady up hill terrain.

No magpies, but still a great hike. Mix of lakeside and ridge. Perfect weather.

A good trail I like because it’s close to home and sparsely populated.

This loop is pretty steep. Definitely check the elevation graph and topographic map to see if it’s an appropriate difficulty for your group. Beautiful views at the highest elevation and the little lake is very serene. Fairly challenging hike for us but experienced hikers may find it to be easier than we did.

love this hike!

Mostly sun exposed and a lot of swarming flies, but beautiful views of the landscape. Fall were dry (September). The sun made this hike especially difficult. There is an outhouse about half way, which is great.

My friend and I did all Ohlone Wildness Trail ( all 30 miles) in 10 hrs & 30 mins in 100 degree weather. stupid, I know. Bring EXTRA water! We ran out. It was pretty difficult especially around mile 21. There is no shade you are very exposed. But we did it!

This is an awesome trial for training for Spartan Racing. This is my second time here and it kicks my butt. As an adaptive Spartan this presents some good challenges for my prosthesis. I don't know hurts more the uphill or the downhill.

collected the wilderness permits a day before. Started the hike early morning from Del Valle, east side. weather was very good in the morning hours. for first few miles, the elevation gain is ok to decent . After Byod's camp, post that you drop down several hundreds feet into the small creek. the real climb start after that. The grade is very steep at some places. COming down is tough on knees and needs good and careful footing. Since it was after the season, the falls were complete dry. Overall 16+ miles of hike with 4000+ feet of gain/loss. highly recommended for those who are training for a long haul!

on Del Valle to Rose Peak

The title is misleading. This hike does NOT go all the way to Rose Peak. It’s only about half way there. Start early in summer days, most of the hike is exposed. It gets very windy above 2600 ft, which is around 5-6 miles in, it can get chilly even in the summer. Some mosquitoes area. Beautiful views.

Beautiful ridge hiking! We went on an extremely windy day. It is full sun and dog friendly on leash. Grab a beer at Hop de Vine nearby after as a post hike reward!

Amazing.

My husband and I were the only crazy folks on this trail. We saw more helicopters above us than hikers. If your looking for a good workout this is perfect but I wouldn’t recommend it for children or pets. It’s very open terrain with little bits of shade here and there. We each brought 3L of water with us and we had to cut our hike short and watch our water consumption by mile 11. I imagine if the weather wasn’t as hot we wouldn’t of drank as much. We saw lots of cows, deer and bones throughout the hike. So if you want to get a good workout bring a big brimmed hat and more than 3L of water and a good traction shoe.

This is a nice trail, it’s wide and very clearly marked. But, and we should have figured this out, it is not well shaded. We got started later than we meant to, and wound up out there in the heat of the day. My wife had to drop out by the lake and I had to hike out by myself and get the car to go around to the boat dock to pick her up. I recommend this trail, but it’s best to trek it in the morning or evening.

Awesome sport for Spartan training. My buddy Jeff brought me here to hike. As an adaptive Para Spartan, this puts you to the test.

Bring plenty of water, look at the map to know how challenging each trail can get, some are steeper than others. Good 2 hour hike moderately traveled.

Such a cool trail! Definitely going back!!

All the reviews are pretty accurate. In late August 90 degree heat, the only reason to do this hike is to train for half dome hike in a month. Otherwise, would not recommend it this time if the year. Mostly exposed so you will feel the heat. No poison Ivy this time of the year. The trail is well laid out with plenty of signs. Still useful to have all trails map downloaded as there a couple of places where you could get off-trail. Too many bugs, inspect spray, sun screen, sun glasses and a hat are a must

Never thought I could do this trail but did it. and feel proud to have completed it.
