Trail shared by Nick Wilder

Spectacular scenery along a high ridgeline.

Description

While the trail is nothing special (a wide abandoned dirt road), the scenery is some of the best in Northern California. From the top of the Bald Mountain Trail, the sun glints off of San Francisco Bay all the way to the Sierra mountains continues as you slightly descend to the south.

The trail bobs up and down the ridgeline with short but steep sections and is aerobically challenging. The trail gets more wooded as you descend but the scenery remains beautiful. It stays very dry even after rains (as does the entire Bald Mountain Loop).

There are indeed a few Gray Pine trees, but you'll most be focused on the scenery on this one!
