Description

You can either start this one at the upper lot (for handicapped parking up the hill) or off of the North Sonoma Mountain Ridge Trail. It's a basic short and sweet uphill road that used to be driven on by ranchers. You'll be surrounded by Valley Oaks and Buckeyes until you near the top when it all opens up where a huge California Bay Tree awaits you. There's a picnic table up there so bring a friend and a meal and enjoy the astounding view from up there!

There's cattle that grazes up there too. Please don't disturb them!
