Did quite a bit more than what was on the trail map. Nice short trail especially the part along the pond. Not too crowded. Mostly people out with their dogs.

Enjoyable trail with a little shade especially down off the levee. Met some nice people along the trail. Had one join me for a mile or so and had a good conversation. This was the 1st of the day. I managed to cover most of the possible trails here.

Enjoyed this one a few times. It wasn't crowded any time I was in this trail system.

Nice little sunny trail with a little up and down. Some decent views as well. Beautiful oaks and some nice houses on the edges.

An enduring, well worth hike. Lots of fresh air and scenic. A moderate walk and rewarding at the end.

Great views and beautiful oak trees and flowers. It has two steep hills if you take the left loop.

Perfect trail for kids, though lots of dog poop to keep an eye out for. Surprisingly quiet given close proximity to freeways/mall.

Good trail, few hilly spots.

I stopped by on my way biking to the Bart station. The track shown is just a gravel path that loops around the recreational area. There are some lakes, but it's not very scenic. You can ride a bike on the path if you want.

Not an easy trail to run for me personally, but I think experienced trail runners would enjoy it. There are plenty of hills, some steep, and the trail does loop. I'd estimate about 75% of the loop I ran has little or no shade. There are some shady spots for sure, which are quite welcome when the weather is warm. The trail itself is wide enough, but watch your ankles as some parts are uneven with holes, rocks, etc.
