Trail shared by Michael Ingrassia

A beautiful run along the top of Pacheco Ridge.

Description

If starting this trail from Kaiser Aetna Road, then the first mile or so is a bit of a climb. After that, it's a more gradual ascent, and you are rewarded with panoramic views for most of the remainder.

Keep an eye out to the west of the trail after the two-mile mark because portions of Pacheco Falls are visible off in the distance.
