“A semi-loop trail connecting the Walnut Creek neighborhood with south end of Lime Ridge Open Space.”— Bob Gardner
From the Ohlone Trail junction, the trail climbs steeply a short distance, then becomes more gradual but steady until reaching the junctions with the Manzanita Trail then Crystyl Ranch Trail, which leads to the Ohlone-Crystyl Ranch Loop, near the top of the ridge. Paraiso takes a sharp right back down the ridge, very steeply, to the Rancho Paraiso neighborhood. This section of trail differs from the published map.
Although not an obvious trail section, it's possible to ride south along a concrete drainage ditch at the edge of the neighborhood. The other option is to ride through the neighborhood on Arbolado Dr.
The trail continues by heading up a paved access road at the end of Ridgestone Ct. that leads to a water tank. At the top, veer right on the dirt road that heads down a ridge to another tank. Another paved access road leads back down to Arbolado Dr. and the trail continues directly across through the neighborhood towards Arbolado Park. Continue straight next to homes to link to Valley Vista Rd. turning right after the gate to reach the trailhead parking.
