Las Trampas Regional Wilderness offers 5,342 acres of wilderness and an expanded trail system that allows hikers and horseback riders to enjoy its remote and rugged areas. The park's size and terrain allow visitors a feeling of privacy and escape from urban hustle and bustle. Carry plenty of drinking water. Two major Bay Area faults--the Las Trampas and Bollinger faults--account for the uplift and exposure of four well-defined geological formations. The Orinda formation holds remnants of ancient beach and shoreline. The El Sobrante formation consists of several fossil-bearing compressed rock layers. The Pinole Tuff is of volcanic origin.
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.
Good trail, did it around noon, partially shaded. Nice views. You can peek at Mt Diablo from few spots.
Nice trail with some hills and views. I did this one and Rocky Ridge Loop back to back in mid December. The trail was muddy at parts as it had rained two days before I went hiking here.
It was nice. There are several trails here. We got turned around because of the cows but found a nice shady trail. Beautiful.
Great hike with beautiful views on a fall evening.
Good one, parking- rocky ridge view - elder berry - parking
