Overview

The trail has a lot of hills. The plant communities that dominate the landscape are oak woodland and grassland. Since I went there during the summer, the hills were brown. The view from anywhere on the trail is beautiful. I could see the bayshore. Along the loop, there was a lot of ground squirrels. They were out in the open and hiding in trees. I saw a few new oak saplings along the trail. There is no shade on the trail. It got hot, but I brought my water. The loop is south of Stanford University. There are hikers on the trail. I did not see any bicyclists, but I think it is possible, even though the hills can be pretty steep.
