Celebrate the long-awaited opening of the Ridge Trail thru Stonebrae Country Club at the crest of Walpert Ridge - the eastern rampart above Hayward and Union City. This is a long bike ride with several thousand feet of climbing & descending. Getting to the Ridge Trail from north or south is about a 1400ft climb, and there are no short cuts or bailouts. Alternative hikes or horseback rides would be out and back from either the south trailhead at Dry Creek Regional Park or from the staging area at Don Castro Regional Recreation Area.
This route is very exposed for most of its length - hot in summer but great views any time - the entire San Francisco Bay, the Peninsula and South Bay, and even Mt Tam in Marin.
