Description

The North Ridge Trail represents about 80% of a relatively small loop at the northern entrance of Rancho San Vicente. It connects the beginning of Lisa Killough Trail to the short Almaden Trail, with an exit to Almaden Road at the back of the park.

Done together with a short section of Lisa Killough Trail, this segment makes a nice warm up/cool down loop and offers the opportunity to use the park as a crossing between McKean Road and Almaden Road (a good option for those coming from the north to reach Almaden Quicksilver).

The trail is mostly (if not all) made of the "wide singletrack" which is very common around the South Bay trails. This segment presents no technical features or difficult climbs.
