Well worth the hike. I enjoyed the adventure to the devil’s chair more than the chair itself though. Lots of amazing scenery to take in

Amazing hike! Definitely a great workout with a solid 33 pounds of baby on your back. Great views! Go early to get some shade and not have to wait long to get your picture on the chip ;). Bring plenty of water and snacks!

Lush vegetation in the desert, two water falls and
Well maintained trails as well. Take your time and enjoy the surrounding area.

Scenerie is beautiful, the terrain is not good for biking. There is too many rocks to enjoy the ride.

Visiting from Northern CA...went by the mountain biking description above. Trail is not bike friendly.

Amazing trail. Great views. Definitely would do it again. Take plenty of water!! On the harder side.

Amazing views of DP Harbor and Cottons Pt.

It's a good beginner hike or just a quick fun cardio session for those with hiking experience! If you want it to be more on the moderate side like it mentions, start by going to the left, it is more uphill with some good hills to get your blood flowing.

It's between easy and moderate. Beautiful! Saw 10 peninsular big horn sheep too.

Was a very nice trail! Great view, high traffic! Lots of dog walkers. At the top is a great area to take a break and relax. Was a fun hike!

Great, accessible workout in the city. Plenty of free street parking when I go on weekdays. Bathrooms, drinking fountain, and nice city views found at the top. I like to take the stairs up and the switchback trail down. It's a little crowded, but that doesn't really matter since it's just a city stairs workout.

Kids love this place. Big cross on top of the mountain can’t get any better.

Probably would be considered a bit above " moderate", but was a great hike, awesome views. To the top little less than two hours taking it easy. I started from Goat Trail. Says private but everyone hikes it.

Beautiful views. But very steep at times. Wear hiking shoes and bring a hiking stick for balance. The water seems to have washed out a lot of the area so you are climbing rocks most of the time going up. When you come down you are also sliding down rocks. I wouldn’t say this is moderate the whole time parts are hard if you don’t hike.

short but has a good leg workout. stairs to go down and stairs to go up on top .. A nice view of waterfalls and wildlife. dirt trail. keep dogs on leash and careful at stairs. bring lots of H2o. gets busy in the mornings. park around the corner by church or at park.

Great hike. Shirt and sweet. Good training hike for Wilson.

I love this trail, however, recently an elderly crazy woman shouts at people, takes their photo and calls the police even if your dog is on a leash. She has accused people of having "vicious" dogs, even calling the city on a cocker spaniel. I wish she would get the help she needs, or at least a hobby.pe

Fun, easy hike for my 10 & 8 year old sons and our golden retriever! Love the tiny off shoot trails... gorgeous scenery and easy to access. Priced kind of high but we enjoyed ourselves!

It's a good trail. Easy, good for kids & dogs too.

Went on a pretty fair day, not too hot not too cool. Started the trail right by the ranger office and walked to the waterfall. Pretty easy and relaxing hike. Found a bench in a tree along the way and a few other nice spots to enjoy the nature. Overall nice hike and I would probably go back!

Lovely walk in the cool months. Not sure what is “moderate” about it as it is nearly completely level and you can walk as far or as little as you want.
Bring pepper spray as we encountered two dogs barking threateningly at us with no owner nearby. I must guess they were from some house on the ridge top.
Nice ferny cliffs with native wildflowers.

Terrible! Dirty with trash everywhere. Homeless camping everywhere with the associated mess and stench. In spots the trail flips from one side of the river to the other, necessitating crossing of busy streets. This trail should be used as a last resort only.

Mileage listed here is inaccurate because you cannot park at the trailhead. I started my recording from where you can park and it was 6.7 miles round trip to the Deer Park Cabin.

The first part of the hike to the trailhead is on a road. There is a pretty cool dam to look at, but other than that it is pretty boring. The best part of the hike is when you get down into the canyon. You will walk alongside a lovely stream under the cover of some beautiful trees. However, the end at Deer Park Cabin is really not that interesting.

We took the same route back as we do not find fire roads to be very exciting. Overall this hike is just okay. On the plus side, it’s not used very much. We only saw two other people and we saw only two pieces of trash on the trail (which we packed out.)

If you do park inside the park entrance gate it will cost $5 on weekdays and $6 on weekends, but you must be out by 5pm. I believe the entrance gate is closed all day Tuesday.

best trail i have done,will definitely be back.

overall it’s a good little trail. i wouldnt have rated it ‘hard’, it’s more on the difficult side of moderate.

the beginning of the trail is tricky because you have to cross a creek that’s a little over a foot deep, so prepare to take off your shoes. the trail is surprisingly well marked though, and pretty basic uphill/downhill there and back. the view is below average for napa, but the lack of other hikers makes up for that. i did not see a single other person on the trail during the 2.5 hour trip, but there’s 4G at the backend of the trail so it makes up for the creepy isolation

Amazing trail & not super difficult. I went up the Haines Canyon Trail to Rim of the Valley Trail which took me to the old Mt. Lukens Trail... hungout on top by myself for an hour and then took then the fire road to the Crescenta View Trail & down to the Wilderness Park.

3.5 hrs up & 2.5 hrs down. Frost line is about 4,000ft & snow line a little under 5,000ft.

Loved the views from the top. A bit steep, be sure to wear proper footwear with good tread.

We went up from the dog park and BOY WAS THAT A STEEP GOOD CHALLENGE!!!!
