Las Trampas Regional Wilderness
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
This remote and rugged park provides an expansive trail system for hikers and equestrians, and rewards them with stunning views from its peaks.
Las Trampas Regional Wilderness consists of two long, hilly ridges separated by Bollinger Canyon. On the west, Rocky Ridge’s tree-dotted hilly grasslands are decorated with wildflowers in spring, and its ridges offer panoramic views. To the east, Las Trampas Ridge is chaparral habitat, and its trails are more exposed. The trailsystem offers hikers connections to EBMUD watershed lands(with a permit) to the west, and The Eugene O’NeillNational Historic Site outside Danville. The park also includes an overnight group campsite, although water availability is unpredictable.
