High Ridge Trail Loop is a 4.8 mile loop trail located near Arroyo Grande, California and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and camping and is accessible year-round.
We started at the parking area at Lopez lake and took the Turkey Ridge Trail which meets up with the High Ridge trail. This added a little mileage, and was a nice shady start to the hike. Lots of fossils of shells, and great view.
Little difficult to find the trailhead. It's marked with a rusted steel gate. Some good hill climbs, with a nice breeze.
great views! tried to take my 4 year old daughter along. was pretty tough for her. boy was she a soldier. horse camp at the end. great trail!
Went during Thanksgiving Break 2011 with whole family. Was a difficult hike for the smaller children with numerous elevation changes. But had fantastic views of the lake below. In the limestone on the trail there are numerous fossils and many fantastic rocks for the budding geologist. Many trails in the area and a fantastic display of wildlife.
