Description

This trip from Rockville Road begins on a connector trail to the park's north entrance and then travels paved and unpaved service roads to a paved trail through the subdivision. Climb gently through volcanic hills to a remote, grassy valley with a splendid stand of blue oaks. Then ascend to a plateau with views of Mount Diablo, Elkhorn Peak, and the Twin Sisters. The trail then drops into and through a residential subdivision to Green Valley Road. Most trees in the park are deciduous, so on a winter day the trails can be comfortably sunny, yet in summer the blue-oak forest offers welcome shade.

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.
