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.
