East Bay Regional Parks
Meet at 9 am, Sunday, July 22 for a 2-3 hours hike along the ridge of Las Trampas Regional Park. Please bring water, sunscreen, hat, and sturdy shoes. There is a sharp uphill trek to start and a flat trail on the ridge.
We will meet at the Bollinger Canyon staging area, north of Crow Canyon Road, go up the Chamise Trail to the Las Trampas ridge trail, go south along the ridge to the edge of the Faria property border, retrace our steps on the ridge trail to the Chen property (newly purchased by the Park District) where we can hike down to Bollinger Canyon. (need some cars there)
If hikers want to return to the staging area they may retrace the ridge trail and return via Chamise to their cars. More avid hikers could easily go longer if they'd like, traveling north along the ridge trail.
Bob Doyle is getting permission to go through one private property (Elworthy) which covers the ridge trail.
Difficulty? Chamise does zig-zag uphill and will take time for the novice hiker. But, once on top, the trail is flat. I would plan for 2-3 hours, bring water and a hat. Fabulous views!
The Las Trampas Ridge trail is part of a longer, overlay trail, the Calaveras Ridge Trail, which will eventually extend from Briones on the north to Sunol on the south.
