San Francisco, CA: Pleasanton Ridgeline Loop

ca

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 5.2 miles


Just minutes from downtown Pleasanton, this 5.2-mile loop treks through shaded olive groves past panoramic vistas of rolling hillsides.
  • Oak Trees
  • Sunburst
  • Pleasanton Valley
  • Ridgeline
  • Olive Orchard

This Pleasanton Valley loop climbs to a scenic bluff that offers panoramic views of the Bay Area. Starting on the Oak Tree Trail, the hike gains 1,000 feet of elevation (over 2.5 miles) on the way up to a trail network that wanders through century-old olive groves and sprawling grassland. In the summer, temperatures can easily push 100 degrees; shade is limited on this trail, so drinking water is the key to a safe, enjoyable hike. It’s not uncommon to see deer ducking in and out of the landscape. Mountain lions, though present, are rarely spotted here.
