“great stop on a lovely hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had read about the labyrinth and headed out to Sibley Volcanic Preserve to find it. Although we took the long and steep way there, as we later realized, it was fun to look for and to explore. It's easy to find and you can get to it from different directions if you follow the trail map available at the Staging Area to the Quarry Pit. Definitely worth the trip! We had a great time.

“Wonderful hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is a magical, wonderful place to hike. The labyrinths are a treasure ... go, pack a sandwich, wear sensible shoes, and see what you can discover...

“Great hike to a labyrinth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The hike is just challenging enough to be rewarding, and gets you up high in the Oakland hills. Near the top, down in a canyon, is a simple labyrinth that can turn the hike into a meditative experience.

“Great Frog Pond”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

Tons of frogs and newt polliwogs. You hike out the left side of the roundtop trail, connect to the Quarry trail and then the pond trail. Leash your dog before you get to the pond - they want to protect the newts. There is a picnic table at the end of the trail and a nice view. A bit of road noise from Highway 24 - but otherwise a great place.

“Paradise 10 minutes from the city.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2012

It took two hikes to find the Labyrinth but it was worth it..
Just to spot it from the hill above makes you feel like you are in a different world.
