Bollinger Canyon Trail provides a relatively short, moderate hike up to the top of Las Trampas Ridge. Las Trampas Regional Wilderness offers 5,342 acres of wilderness and an expanded trail system that allows hikers and horseback riders to enjoy its remote and rugged areas. The park’s size and terrain allow visitors a feeling of privacy and escape from urban hustle and bustle. Once at the top, you will see beautiful panoramic views of the East Bay. This park is a good place for bird watching. There are many species of hawks, and occasionally, golden eagles are sighted. The trail is soil, so it may be rutted and bumpy from cow traffic.
