Did this trail today, from the parking lot for about .8 miles it's a bit uphill, but evens out until the last .5 miles to the top of the hill. Really nice view of Stanford and the rest of the bay area, the weather was hot under the sun but perfect in the shade. Saw lots of little lizards and birds, also a few bikers and families. Overall a nice place, not a hard hike at all and it was not too crowded.

I did the Russian Ridge extension of this trail. The first mile was uphill...a bit tough on the out of shape folk (like me). However the views are great and you get a 360 degree view to the ocean & SF bay area. Did this in the autumn, but I bet it is gorgeous in the spring with wildflowers blooming, as much of this hike is open fields. Very pretty
