Las Trampas Peak is a 4.3 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Alamao, California that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
This loop passes through oak and bay forest, chaparral, and grassland, on its way to high grounds with great views. No bicycles on the Chamise Trail or single-track segment of the Las Trampas Ridge Trail. ( Bicyclists wishing to ride to Las Trampas Peak must follow the Bollinger Canyon Trail uphill to the multi-use part of the Las Trampas Ridge Trail).
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.
nice trail for quick 4mile solid hiking
Nice little hike. It was basically the Bollinger Loop Trail with an additional 1.5 mile detour to the top of Las Trampas Peak. So if Bollinger Loop is too easy for you then try this hike instead. There are some nice views of the area, but you'll have better views on Rocky Ridge, although you'll have less traffic on this trail.
Really enjoy this area. There are some very nice trails that don't get much use. There are some nice hills, nothing too log, and some great views. I would like to do it again...
