I've done this loop twice. It's very near my house yet, it has a "wilderness" feel to it, even though it's right in the middle of some of the densest housing in the world. The loop is an ideal distance for someone in my shape (about 3.5 miles) Some quibbles: the parking is non-existent - there's a couple spots on the street near the trail head. Also, the trail is poorly marked with a number of "Ys" that can get you easily lost. Most of them won't take you to far out of your way. if I do it a couple more times I will get the directions figured out. Overall, a very pleasing view and moderate workout. Watch out for the occasional mountain biker. Best time to walk it is in "winter."
