“An open trail through the grass hills of Calero County Park with great views.”— Joan Pendleton
Pena Trail immediately starts climbing as it heads into the tree studded grass hills of Calero County Park. As the trail climbs, the Diablo Range in the distance to the right/northeast, comes into view. To the left are wooded grass hills. Vallecito Trail is passed on the left, followed by the end of Los Cerritos Trail on the right.
After passing the Los Cerritos Trail end, Pena Trail continues climbing to reach its high point at the 0.6 mile mark. From here, the trail bends right and then, almost immediately, left. As the trail bends left, an awesome view unfolds—the wooded grass hills with a backdrop of the Santa Cruz Mountains in the distance. Mt. Umunhum at 3,488 feet can be seen.
While enjoying these views, the trail descends slightly to end at a trail junction with Figueroa Trail and Serpentine Loop Trail.
