Probably my favorite trail in the South Bay. A true hidden gem. Lightly traveled (we've done the loop without seeing a sole), and the views are stunning. First mile+ is a bit of a climb but once on top you hike along a ridge line that provides views in multiple directions. No traffic noise, no people, you feel as if you're alone in the wilderness. Just awesome. Once you drop down into the canyon (end of mile 2) you're treated with a beautiful seasonal stream with large granite looking boulders akin to what you'd see in a low elevation sierra stream. Final mile is practically flat and really enjoyable. If not for the first mile of climbing this trail is EASY.
