Below are “favorite hiking routes” with approximate distances and completion times. We will continually add to this list, and as it grows, will organize it in a more structured format to make it easier to scan different hikes. Click here for the trail map of BMDSF.
NOTE: During the weekends in first months of 2013, several Northern California bike clubs and racing groups will be riding in the forest. Please be mindful of blind corners, travel speed, and the right-of-way courtesies in a multi-use trail system.
Please note that these routes are contributed by frequent visitors and members of Friends of Boggs Mountain (FOBM), and neither party is responsible for the trail conditions, accuracy, and difficulty ratings of these routes.
Mac’s Trail – Hoberg’s Loop – Mac’s Trail
Distance: ~3 miles
Time: 1 – 1.25 hr
Description: Excellent route for an hour cardio hike, and moderately-challenging trail run. Starts off on a moderate grade up Mac’s Trail that levels out as you approach Hoberg’s Loop. At the intersection with Hoberg’s Loop, you can either take the left or right spurs as both have up- and downhill sections. Keep your eye out for the low sign for Mac’s Trail which will lead you back to the parking area.
