A long, steady fire road climb to the Pleasanton Ridge.

Mike Anciaux

Overview

Description

Park in downtown Sunol near the train station. The trail starts with a very steep paved driveway on Foothill Rd about 50 yds from the train station. The trail is a fire road with little shade but great views of the canyon to the West. It climbs steadily for several miles passing other fire roads that cut off to the Ridge Trail that runs parallel to the East. The trail starts in Pleasanton Ridge Park (East Bay Regional Park District). At about 3 miles, it enters Augustine Bernal Park (City of Pleasanton) where it ends at the Ridgeline Trail.

Getting forecast...

Thermalito meets up with the P. Ridge loop twice. Once right after the Oak Trail climb and again after climbing the ridge line trail a ways. On June 26, 2017, I rode up ridge line to the second junction and went down Thermalito trail. This is a phenomenal downhill section that's not too hard but will test technical skill. Also some fun but illegal single tracks add a little flavor to the bold. Jun 26, 2017
