Started counterclockwise on Chamise which is a single track up to the ridge. Didn’t care for the downhill on the way back on the western side which is just a fire road exposed. Las Trampas summit was great

Trapline Trail a nice alternative start for ultimate heading of Las Trampas Peak. I wonder the history behind Trapline... seems to be less traveled.

It was a good hike started around 545p... took us about 2 hours to complete the loop. Steep climb on the first mile but after that should be easier... more climb on the LT peak. Lots of shade on this climb.

Shade less than 50% of the time, so bring water and be prepared!

Amazing hike. Just the right combination of inclines and flats. Got a good workout and amazing views of mount Diablo and Alamo. House with a small vineyard - a must see from the top most part of this trail just before the trail turns to the other side of the loop.

Very steep hike going into the first mile, easy hike throughout the rest of the trail. Disappointed that I didn’t get to see many wildflowers or wildlife besides the cows we passed by inn the beginning but that sort of my fault for not coming in the spring. Nether the less decent workout. It’s dog friendly and also saw a few parents bringing their kids

Great hike with 360 views of east bay! Worth the climb. The steepest part is pavement.

Awesome hike. One of the best in the area. It will test you. Hike it clockwise if you like to get the gnarly uphill out of the way first. The ridge is a fun run. Cell reception on the ridge and even a few poke stops. Lots of fun, great scenery, and a great workout.

Did this hike again about 2 weeks back.. good trail about 5 Miles round trip. Going up went through the left side from the trail head to the Bollinger Creek Trail a paved trail to the top of the peak.. Took about 1 hr 30mins going up. Great views of Moraga, Orinda, Walnut Creek, Alamo, Danville, and Mount Diablo. On the way back coming down took the Chamise trail a true narrow trail over the ridge. Took about 1 hr 30 mins to get down..nice lil hike

We started at the Hap MaGee Ranch Park. We walked a short distance on the Camille Ave to the Madrone Trail trailhead. We hiked the Madrone Trail to the Las Trampas Ridge Trail, and reached to the Las Trampas Peak (1827’). We continued to the Corduroy Hills Trail and climbed up to the Eagle Peak (1720’). This hike was long (9.3 miles) and hard (elevation gain of 2,300 feet) but the views on the peaks were phenomenal.

This trail was challenging on the uphill and the rain has left areas of sloshy, difficult to navigate mud. However, the slog is well worth it if you can make it to the ridge. Beautiful and serene view from the top, pleasant hike back with creek running along the trail. Very nice.
