The Ridge Trail route branches east and west through Santa Teresa County Park. Take a round-trip trail east through high, oak-studded grasslands to Coyote Peak. Then head west on well-graded, exposed paths, past spring wildflower displays, serpentine outcrops, and Coast Range views. Listen to the sound of running water on the tree-lined Calero Creek Trail, and finish on the wide, paved, partially shaded Los Alamitos Creek Trail. The trail through Santa Teresa County Park is exposed and can be hot in summer and early fall.
