Very open trail without any shade. Bring plenty of sun screen and water. The trail is not very "scenic." it follows the county line and the view is mostly neighborhoods and the creek not really a river.
There is plenty of wild life especially all types of water fowl. I also saw a family of deer at the base Red Hill trail where it intersects with Alameda Creek trail. The trail is rated as moderate and mostly due to its length. Minimum elevation change and the trail is paved. Moderate cyclist activity, then again, I went on a Thursday. Weekend activity much heavier.

It was a good trail, not popular so not that crowded. Loved the view from top !! And little plane crash history was good to know.

Not crowded at all. Did this trail early morning around sunrise. Has beautiful views. Kid-friendly.

Great bike ride. The path is relatively smooth and goes under all of the roads and highways. If you want to do a little extra, take a left when you reach the end and loop back through Coyote hills. There is about a mile along the sliver of land that takes you back to Coyote Hills that is rocky, so don't take that path if your tires aren't cut out for it.

It's a beautiful hike through meadows, riparian forest, shaded canyons, and a panoramic view of the bay. What a nice discovery.
