This is a moderate trail that goes on a gentle incline mostly for 2 mi, then downhill switchbacks for 1.7 mi (starting from nature trail entrance). Then it meets up with Weiler Ranch Rd trail and it's a flat .75 mi or so back. There is a section of lush eucalyptus forest that's pretty cool. I like it because on a weekday, you'll rarely run into anyone. I've hiked this after work many times and haven't passed a single soul. So if you like solitude you'll get it (less so on weekends).

I enjoyed this route clockwise even though I intended to go counter based on others comments. It was more crowded than I had hoped/expected based on others reviewers...but it was a sunny Sunday midday and pleasant anyway. I would definitely do this again for another short two hour hike.

Pretty gentle up and downhills, but not much of a trail (mostly an old asphalt road)

Nice trail, pretty good workout but definitely not hard. Views are just okay hence the 3 star rating.

Great views of the Ocean, the Bay and reservoir; steep at points and mostly exposed.

I was looking for an easy hike for a girl's trip and this did not disappoint! Accessible for everyone's skill level and beautiful views. We were fortunate enough to see a few whales from the bench lookout and several bunnies along the way. Highly recommend for all levels!
