Climb gently through volcanic hills to a remote, grassy valley with a splendid stand of blue oaks. Then ascend to a plateau with views of Mount Diablo, Elkhorn Peak, and the Twin Sisters. The trail then drops into and through a residential subdivision. This trip begins on a connector trail to the park’s north entrance and then travels paved and unpaved service roads to a paved trail through the subdivision. Most trees in the park are deciduous, so on a winter day the trails can be comfortably sunny, yet in summer the blue-oak forest offers welcome shade. Restrooms are available on this trail.

For details on all of the Bay Area Ridge trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press: https://www.wildernesspress.com/product.php?productid=16685&cat=274&bestseller=Y Accessibility: The most accessible section for wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers is paved and about one mile long, spanning from the intersection of Citadel and Abbey Drive (the southern tip of the route) and going north to Emerald Bay Drive. Past that point, the grade gets much steeper (over 20%) so will likely not be navigable for wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers. There is street parking available by the Citadel and Abbey Drive intersection. The trail surface in the accessible section is paved and typically at least five feet wide, with an estimated gentle grade of 3% or less.Show more

The trail in Lynch Canyon climbs and descends a series of grassy hilltops, and offers stunning 360-degree views. An ideal time to visit is the spring, when dazzling arrays of wildflowers cover the hillsides and the creeks run full. A distinctive feature along the spine of the preserve is a loose aggregation of irregularly shaped rocks graced by wind-sculpted live oak and bay trees. The McGary Road segment is a bike lane that begins at Red Top Road, connecting to Lynch Canyon and the Hiddenbrooke Trail. There are restrooms and there may be a fee to park.
