dogs on leash
Hike on the Ridge between Loma Verde Open Space Preserve and Pacheco Valle Open Space. This trail offers stunning vistas and chance to enjoy the beautiful open space. Take Chicken Shack Fire Rd. to Big Rock Ridge Rd.
It's a boring trail but great workout. As you're going up you're facing away from the water so you don't get nice views going up. Going down you get a bit more views but not that many. There isn't a lot of shade so if it's hot bring lots of water. I wouldn't rate this as difficult, it's a moderate hike.
Beautiful views. Quiet.
