It was our first time going to Redwood Regional Park and didn’t expect it was this nice. This trail has good views and is an easy hike. Weather was nice this weekend as well. Definitely going back!!

Beautiful walk, most of it in the shade and alongside a stream. The only caveat: the last mile to mile and a half is STEEPLY uphill, and may be too much for some casual hikers. Otherwise, I had a terrific time, and will definitely be going back.

Beautiful trail, hilly but a lot of great views!

Hiked every foot of Briones multiple times... My go to for 10 yrs.

You're basically just walking on the road around the lake. There is no trail.

Trail that we did was actually 9.7 miles but great workout up and down fire trails. Gorgeous and not heavily trafficked. Would be super hot in summer given there's not much shade. Plus we saw a puppy golden retriever at the end....so worth it obviously.

I started from Briones Road, at about half mile I turned left to the Black Oak Trail, hiked up to the Mott Peak Trail, turned right and continued onto the Briones Crest Trail and to the Table Top Trail. I then took the Crescent Ridge Trail and it became the Seaborg Trail which led me back to the parking lot. My total distance was 7.2 miles with elevation of 1273 feet for a total of 3 hours (moving time was two and half hours). There few muddy spots here and there but overall it was a great hike with lots of scenery views.

Beautiful location. One of my favorite running spots. Just watch out for the gang of geese.

I took the Seaborg Trail and hiked up to the Crescent Ridge Trail and back. For a total of 3.8 miles I finished in little more than an hour. Got some good workout with some fantastic sunset view on the way.

Longer loop that is less traveled than most of the trails on the Reliz Valley Rd side. A good cardio and a good place to put some miles on with less people

Came early on a Saturday morning, standing on top of the cloud, absolutely amazing views! A small part of the trail is strenuous, without the app I will for sure get lost.

Can be pretty hot in open places. Neat views and lovely wide sections under big canopy
