“A wooded trail that climbs gradually to a ridge top with great views.”— Joan Pendleton
As shown in this description, Chisnantuck Peak Trail starts at the Cottle Rest Site where Cottle Trail ends. From here, it enters the woods and begins climbing gradually for its entire length. As the trail ascends, the woods thin and there are open grassy sections. Views of Calero Reservoir and the Diablo Range across Santa Clara Valley, emerge. Continuing to climb, the trail once more becomes completely wooded for about its last .7 miles.
Chisnantuck Peak Trail ends at a ridgetop trail junction with Bald Peaks Trail and great views.
