Event Notes:

Remember to set your clocks back one hour on saturday night. I need Pleasanton residents for our carpool to the staging area (one per vehicle, and does not have to be the driver.). Carpool site is Mexico Lindo parking lot (Orange Bldg.) From 680S, exit at Bernal and go right under 680 for two traffic lights to Koll Center Dr. Go left a short distance to Koll Center Pkwy. Turn right and an immediate right into the ML parking lot.

Trail Notes:

PLEASANTON RESIDENT REQUIRED FOR ENTRY TO PARK. A short ride to the trailhead. The Pleasanton resident signs in for the vehicle at the guard station. It is 800' of elevation gain over 2 miles to the top of the Ridge. One mile further along the top of the Ridge to the scenic view spot. Take pictures. At this point we can split into 2 groups: those that want to return to the trail head for a total hike of 6 miles, and those that want to do an additional 3 mile loop into Sinbad Canyon for a total hike of 9 miles (plus an additional 500' of elevation gain). The 6 mile hike is 2+ hours and the 9 mile hike is 3+ hours. Both hikes are 50% shade.

Directions to Trailhead:


From the carpool location, we take Bernal west 1/4 mile to Foothill (light). Left 1 mile to Golden Eagle Way (stop sign). Right 50' to the guard shack. Stay in the left lane. Left at the first intersection (Golden Eagle Way) to the staging area.

CarPool Directions to Mexico Lindo restaurant:

Exit 680S at Bernal. At Bernal turn right and go under 680 for 2 traffic lights. Turn left at the second light (Koll Center Dr.). Go a very short distance to Koll Center Pkwy (stop sign). Right turn and a very short distance to the first driveway on the right. Right into the parking lot of the Mexico Lindo restaurant. This is an orange/pinkish building that is very visable from Bernal and Koll Center.
