This hiking trail is very easy to reach. Today I saw three coyotes passing in front of me about 100 feet away in the star ridge trail. it's amazing to see these wild animals but also a little bit surprised as star ridge trail is surrounded by prestigous houses and city streets. A hiker later I met in star ridge trail told me he saw coyotes in this part of trail too.

Adding the short segment in Fremont Older Preserve to the summit of Nob Hill (1140') will make this hike in Parker Ranch that much more enjoyable. The moderately difficult hike is through dirt trails much of the way. The steep hill in the beginning (gaining 250' in about 2/10 of a mile) will get your heart rate pumped up.
