“A steep start then great singletrack entry into the northern section of Pleasanton Ridge Regional Park.
— Mike Anciaux
Start in the new (as of 2018) staging area off of Foothill Rd. It is a steep climb through grassland to start, then you'll duck into the forest for about a mile. This is followed by a moderate climb on gorgeous wooded singletrack to the Courdet Ridgeline Connector
, which will take you to the Ridgeline Trail
