I hiked the Bollinger Creek Loop Trail late morning today. Starting at the Bollinger Creek Loop Trail. I continued onto the Las Trampas Ridge Trail, then turned left onto the Calaveras Ridge Trail, went down at the Trapline Trail and Mahogany Trail and back to the parking lot. Total distance was 3.3 miles with 719 feet elevation. The few parts of trail were muddy but it was manageable. It was a great hike and I totally enjoyed.

Awesome views. Mud is really bad on way down right now. Was with my two boys, 6 and 8. Wouldn't bring kids any younger, my husband had to turn back with my 3 yr old.

Trail was incredibly muddy, but still really lovely. Varied terrain, with some stunning vistas of dappled green hills, rock outcroppings, and even far views to the bay.

I will say there were a couple of turns in the route suggested here that were a bit hard to follow, but we still wound up in the right place!

It was a decent hike for a family. Only problem was mud puddles while coming back

Tough inital climb to the ridge. Beautiful views of Mt. Diablo and surrounding bay area!

have done this loop several times and still is exciting to me. the area gets covered in carpet of beautiful wildflowers in spring.

Nice climb to the top of the ridge. Go after the rain to see the animal tracks.

Excellent hike. Not crowded and the view was well worth it. Trail was alittle muddy, but that's to be expected with all the rain we have recently gotten. My dog loved it.
