nice little trail just a stone's throw from the hustle and bustle
Really quite the beautiful view at the top of Lookout Mountain. The trailhead is not clearly marked which was confusing at first, but it's one of the dirt roads you see that go behind the buildings of Ski Apache it appears to be one of the service roads. I found it helpful to the GPS in this app to make sure I was on the right path at the beginning of the trip. It is a tough climb to reach the top but you will not regret it once you get there. Our hike ended up being 6 miles out and back instead of the 5.4 shown here on All Trails.
It was quite a work out. A lot of up and down along the Ridge trail. It was a very beautiful hike especially along Shady Creek and Sinbad Creek. I also loved the Olive grove, it made me feel like I was in the Holy Land. Expansive views of Pleasanton, Livermore, Mt Diablo, Mission Peak, Sunol Ridge, Interstate 680.
One of my favorites around LA, if not my favorite.
