Very muddy ! To early in the year. We turned around

from the west entrance I hiked up the 1.5 trail on black tail ridge. great hike, excellent views at the top.

beautiful trail even in the rain, great view at the top. However, not well marked at all if you do the loop counter clockwise!

Great Hike

packed my 2 year old. she hiked some. great for many ages. a good bit of the trail is stroller friendly. gorgeous views.

done this a number of times it's actually a hard hike. first mile is a doosey

It best in the spring when everything is green and in bloom.

Pretty steep climb but great 360 vistas from the ridge. I strayed off the main trail at one point, following an unmarked path which merged from one to another - would have been hopelessly lost without GPS - recommend staying on the trail :)

First time here, thus was a little confused about which way to go. I started at main lot, comstock and went along black basin road to a hill with a weather station then back along powerline road to lot. (5miles)There are alot of other trail options and another entance on the west side. The views from the ridges and hill are awesome. Wide open space for most of hike. Muddy horse track areas and several small step over type streams are present.

Arrived and gate was closed during time it should have been opened, so it added an extra 1.5 miles round trip to the hike. Very worth the 8+ 1.5 miles! The views up on the ridge is amazing. Saw lot of wild life. We went up Soggy Bottom trail and across the ridge to Middle then down Thistle Ridge back to road at the East/Main Entrance. Largest Madrone trees I've ever seen. Some pretty steep sections but still give it a moderate rating.

The views were stunning on this cold clear January day as I hiked the 7 mile loop trail out of the Comstock Day Use parking lot. There were several people on horseback and a few other hikers but I pretty much had the entire hike to myself. Parts of the trail were moderately steep but a good workout nonetheless. These trails can be very muddy in a normal year but our dry winter has made them quite passable this time of year. The views from the top of the hills were spectacular. The land the wildlife preserve is on was once a cattle ranch and some old buildings from those days dot the landscape.
