A scenic ride along the Long Ridge Open Space Preserve.

Overview

Dogs: No Dogs

Description

This trail is most easily accessed from the parking area off of Skyline Boulevard. From there, the doubletrack takes you out to the open ridge at Long Ridge Open Space Preserve. On a nice clear day, you can get a very good view of the coast. The trail ends at Ward Road, just past the intersection with the Hickory Oaks Connector. Most people would link this trail with the Saratoga Gap trail for a longer ride.

This short ride is mostly dirt road with some nasty but short climbs with steep drops to add interest :-) The views and wildlife are very good and it is one of my favorites because it accesses the more interesting single track on the Peters Creek and Long Ridge Trails. It can also be extended with single track east to Saratoga Gap and west along the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Feb 15, 2014
