Good for elevation change, dirt and rocky paths, watch out for the cow poop. Overall a good trail.

I agree with others about this being a moderate intensity hike, but I'd like to add that it took me 1hr 45min instead of the predicted 2.5hrs (I'm no marathon hiker, btw). If you want to get the uphill over with, go clockwise and hit up the Ridge Top Trail first. This portion of the hike runs parallel to the neighborhoods and contains many constant inclines, and rare shade . The Briones to Mt. Diablo portion is fairly wide and exposed. There weren't many folks this morning (started at 8:30am) given that it's summer time, and a week day. Shell Ridge Open Space is beautiful in the spring when the flora is green (instead of brown), reminiscent of the luscious rolling hills in the sound of music ;p

I thought Sugar Loaf Shell Ridge was steep. Not too bad. Good loop!

First half of hike was beautiful! 2nd half was a lot of loose gravel, steep and less shade. My partner fell 3 times on loose gravel and yes, she was wearing good hiking shoes! I’m glad we did the hike, but with so many other beautiful hikes in the area to conquer, I doubt we will do it again. I do recommend trying it once though.

Difficult trail to follow; lots of intersecting trails. Recommend going early during summer to avoid the heat. Will return in spring when everything is green

Great trail... steep & gravely at times. Fell a couple times due to loose gravel w/ hiking shoes on. Be careful... carry a walking stick & make sure you have good HIKING shoes. Not sneakers!

Def no shade on this hike but beautiful views. Went off the recommended trail to get more of a incline, which was def worth it. Will do again

It’s moderate, not easy. A lot to enjoy, naturewise. Avoid doing this on a hot day.

A pretty, low to moderately trafficked trail that overlooks the hillside. It’s easy to wander off course if you don’t keep up with the trail path.

Nice hike! Go early if it’s going to be a warm day, there’s little shade on the trail!

The parking is a PAY lot: $6 on 6/20/20. The side streets are permit parking only so plan to bring exact change. We started at 10am and it was already warm, 80 degrees F. There is little cover on this hike so plan accordingly. Beautiful views, plenty of cattle, lizards, rabbits and birds. Some areas on the trail were loose sand/dirt. Overall it was an enjoyable hike and the majority of the trail is wide fire road, while the small Hidden Valley section is tight single track. This is a great hike for the winter/spring when things are green.

This is a beautiful trail that backs Mt. Diablos Rock city with some cool rock views. If you walk along the rocks however, be careful of rattle snakes, we almost got bit when we weren’t being aware.
