Description

A vigorous uphill trip begins at CA 12 and follows Hood Creek through forests and meadows, past several ponds, and then climbs to the top of 2,730-foot Hood Mountain for distant views. After the first mile, the 2017 Nuns Fire burned through most of the trail corridor.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
