Trail Notes

The Rocky Ridge View Trail at the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness is a difficult 3.1-mile one-way trail that leads up to a mountain ridge within the wilderness with amazing views of the area.

The first half-mile of the trail is a steep uphill climb along a paved road. After approximately 0.6-miles, the hike departs the pavement and turns left to continue along the Rocky Ridge View Trail. From here the terrain becomes much flatter as you hike along the ridge.

This trail continues until you reach a locked gate at the end of the trail, which is also a park boundary marker. From here you can hike back to parking along the Elderberry Trail for a 5.2-mile loop. Or you can take this trail back for a 6.2-mile out-and-back hike.

Parking: Parking can be found at the main lot at the end of Bollinger Canyon Road in Moraga, CA.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if they are leashed and waste is carried out.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
