Fun trail!

Was a good steep hike up the slope and a nice walk back to the stream at the start

Rough. Hiking in the summer is too hot no shade. Might be a better hike to do in the spring time.

Got there around 6PM. I was just doing a quick, easy hike for my niece. I noticed that people are starting to trash the place. There are all kinds of tagging on all the rocks which is really unfortunate. Besides that the weather was amazing and the hike got me warmed up which is usually my goal cause I like to hike through the water

Well maintain trail. Not too many people until I got to Little Yosemite. lots of shade in the morning on Indian Creek trail. The views from Vista grande are absolutely to die for. and don't make the mistake I did and take the wrong turn at Vista grande. Thanks Alltrails for alerting me when I went off the trail.

Good long hike. there was shade in the morning on Indian Joe trail due to the deep ravine. Entire trail was in great condition. Only a very small section was narrow and you could wear shorts without brush the poison oak. Only saw three hikers on a Friday until I got to Little Yosemite which had a ton of people.

Beautiful creek alongside trail, very cold water. It was very hot when we finished the trail (10 AM-2PM). Lots of people came by and waded in the water. I loved seeing all the different rocks. There was no fee yesterday (Tuesday July 28) when I went. Lots of parking. Highly recommend when you go toward the entrance, keep on driving until you see a closed off gate toward the trail. That way when you are done with the hike, it’s not as long of a walk to your car!

Easy, short trail that ends in the smallest “waterfall” I’ve ever seen. The trail follows Alameda Creek, so plenty of water, shade, and nature (i.e. bugs and birds) nearby. I went in the evening of a summer day so the sun was out and it was pretty hot. Definitely pack sunscreen!

Nice, easy, with an enticing creek running alongside the main trail. Creek is easily accessible through numerous connecting smaller trails, though might be steep for some and slippery if you’re wearing regular sneakers. Water is clear and cold, inviting especially if you’re hiking during this mid, hot summer days. At trail’s end, most people trek a short distance towards the right following the burbling small “waterfall”, which I imagine would be a wonder to see during springtime.

The reviews didn’t lie. This trail is nearly entirely exposed. Make sure you get to the park as soon as it opens so you can get a head start on the sun. I would advise bringing four liters of water. I had three and would have liked a little more. The views were pretty, but not spectacular. There were also sticky green plants that grew over the trail- my legs and hiking poles are covered. My verdict? I hiked this trail for the NorCal 6 pack of peaks and enjoyed it for the challenge but wouldn’t do it with friends.

Good workout hike. Views from the peaks are good. Not much to see at the far Eastern part of the trail before it reverses.

Nice easy trail with a beautiful view of the hills but HEAVILY trafficked on a Friday afternoon. Lots of people also going in the creek.

I took this trail counterclockwise, which is what I would recommend on a summer morning. Camp Ohlone road is a wider, easier trail with lots of foot traffic. Backpack trail and McCorkle have wonderful views and peaceful valleys, and these trails are much more technical than Camp Ohlone Rd. Lots of parking too!

Little Yosemite itself is very beautiful, and this hike it very easy and suitable for families. It is however extremely heavily trafficked, making it challenging if not impossible to socially distance. There are places to wade in the water and many people do, though there are signs asking that you do not.
