A fabulous run up the trail including the spur to the summit at about 1,850 ft. Fabulous views of Silicon Valley in one direction and when you turn 180 degrees it is a gorgeous view of just golden rolling hills with the pacific breezes blowing steadily and rustling the field grasses as the only noises you hear. Stop on the summit and peacefully ponder how important preserving these open spaces should be to us all! The grade is aggressive for a trail run for all but the strongest trail runners but nice for a hike for most people. A combination of irt single track trails and wide fire roads.
