If you are looking for a quality hike in the woods with moderate grades, this is a good choice. The views do not compare with most NorCal trails but trail choices and trail lengths are worth a 4 rating. Get there early on weekends and...More

Lots of trails to fit different physical levels. Some are more shaded than others. The park opens 15 min before sunrise, and many cars already line up outside. The parking is a serious issue after 9 am.

I hike the trails often. For a close-in park it is well maintained and has variety. There are a number of 2 through 6 mile hikes and a couple of 10 mile ones.
