Trail shared by Bay Area Ridge Trail Staff

Nice, relatively short out-and-back trail for a busy weekday or a leisurely weekend outing anytime of the year.

Description

These rolling grasslands offer expansive views of San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bays and the mountains that encircle them, from Mount Tamalpais to Mount Diablo. You have short steep climbs along this exposed trail and must return to Hiddenbrooke Parkway before following Hiddenbrooke Access Trail to trailhead parking area at McGary Road. During summer, take this trip on cool mornings; some spots are muddy after heavy rains.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
