    Great place! Some treks for sporty adults, some for people with children or even trolleys. Everyone will find a path for them.

    I love this place, but peak times are 9-11 AM. It will be almost impossible to find parking. But you can drive a little past the parking lot to find parking in the residential neighborhood.

    Nice trail. There are trees everywhere which much needed relief from the sun. Parking is a big problem, so try and get there early.

    Has 4 parking lots, but still couldn't find parking at 6:30 am on a Saturday. There is a residential community next to it, where you can street park

    Hike the PG&E trail early or late, to avoid banking in the sun. 4000 feet cumulative altitude gain.

    Hike to the top of the PGE trail to get an awesome view of the valley and the bay. Takes about 2-3 hours start to finish. Enjoy the wildlife you'll see on your way.

    One of my most favorite places!!! Great if you're looking for a nice walk with friends or, if you want to challenge yourself, pick a trail and get going! My favorite trail, Upper Wild Cat Trail.

    Looking to get in shape and see some great scenery.. This park is wonderful for hiking and/or trail running. The PG&E trail will take about 3.5 hours and will put your daily calories in a deficit. Read more
