“A trail through the wooded grass hills of Calero County Park, with views of Calero Reservoir.”— Joan Pendleton
At the start of Los Cerritos Trail, unobstructed views of McKean Road in the distance, and the Diablo Range in the far distance can be seen to the northeast. Los Cerritos Trail begins by heading southwest and climbing into the wooded and grass hills of Calero County Park, to get to a ridge top.
About 0.2 miles from Oak Cove Trail, Los Cerritos Trail reaches the ridge top, and veers left (southeast) to follow the ridge top. This is a grassy ridge with stands of oak and a few buckeye trees. As the trail climbs along the ridge top, it leaves the views of McKean Road and other civilization behind. A gorgeous view of the western end of Calero Reservoir nestled among the wooded and grass hills, can be seen.
Los Cerritos Trail then makes one final short but rather steep climb before ending at Pena Trail.
