Description

This segment begins in the western Pinole Valley Watershed and climbs to the ridge over hilly grass- land, entering the regional preserve after 1 mile. The preserve's route is mostly a ridgetop fire road, and partially shaded, providing remarkable views of the mountains that ring the bay.

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.
