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 indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
