I love the eucalyptus grove on the top of the ridge, just wish the trail was easier to access from terra Linda.

If you take this trail from the China Camp Village parking lot south along the ridge trail (the china camp village trail will take you to the ridge trail), it's an amazing view of the Bay all the way over to Richmond. It's an easy walk, but you can get great mileage out of it too. The problem is that it's extremely popular with cyclists. If you can go during a weekday, you might be ok - otherwise, you are guaranteed to be moving for cyclists every 5 minutes or so. It can be stressful.
