  • 3 1/2 hours hiking up Flag Hill and further trails in glorious sunshine, clear visibility for miles, and did not see another person. Well worn trails so easy to follow. Highly recommend a visit  more »
  • Yes, worth the walk/hike. We went to Little Yosemite. Park in the over flow parking at the far end of the park. The easy hike is to take the road "hike" to Little Yosemite and then back via the Canyon...  more »
  • If you are looking for a place to walk and enjoy the nature as it is then sunol is the place for you . But watch out for the lizards, snakes, ticks, and the most important mountain lions... Had a walk...  more »
  • Very nice, accessible space with great variation in the terrain. The "Little Yosemite" creek canyon adds a great distraction from the typical open hills of the area, and there's enough forested trail that you can escape the sun for a little while. A little diversion into the Cave Rocks is worth the time, too! The only real downside is that all that also draws fairly large crowds, and since it's a great place to get kids outside on "real"hiking trails where you can tromp through streams, lots of families. It's wonderful to see the little ones out having fun and enjoying nature, but does make for congestion in several areas where the main trail is fairly narrow.
  • DOV: 21Feb2016 This is a wonderful place for hiking and walking if you are in SFO. There are small waterways with trees, small climbs and full greenery. People come with dogs too and have good walk here too. Good place in terms of scenic value too.
  • Escape away from the hustle bustle of the urban area... yet not too far away. Loved it's many hiking options. Little Yosemite area is a nice area to go on a date. The path was lined with a range of wild flowers... vetches, monkey flowers, mustard yellow flowers, yarrow etc.
  • Loved this place on an overnight backpacking trip. Easy access from 680. Very close to residential and business parks in Bay Area and yet feels like back country. The campsites are on top of the hill with amazing views. There is no cell phone reception for most part. If you are desperate take the oholone wilderness trail beyond the campsites and you should get cell phone signal.
  • Nice but partially strenuous hike. The path I choose to Little Yosemite had some moderate elevation climbs but was not to hard for a reasonably fit person. Nice variety of wildflowers on the way to the falls. In late April, the falls had plenty of water flowing over the large boulders. Restrooms located at the parking lot.
