Great hike and can be a little challenging for some people. The steps and going over the rocks can be quite a journey for some. Highly recommend this place if you aren't afraid of a little hard work.
This is my goto hike whenever I have guests in town that like to hike. I prefer to do the hike in counterclockwise direction, doing the ups right away, and walking down the steps at the Homestead Trail. Awesome views of Lake Berryessa. Wonderful ridgeline hike
I enjoyed the varied terrain and rock scrambling along this trail. it wasn't too long and there were great views of lake beryesa. one side of the loop is a hot switch back section, the top is rocky scrambling with views and the other side of the loop is shaded with lots of plant varities.
We just came back from doing this trail and couldn't be happier. Challenging but fun and very well maintained trail. Only took me and my wife 2 hours so don't be afraid by the trail description of 4-5 hours, anyone with a fairly good condition can nail this in under 3 hours.
I have hiked this loop 3 times in the summer and spring. Amazing views and challenging climbs over a beautiful ridge line. This is by far my favorite hike in this area.
