Borel Hill Loop via Ridge Trail
This is a moderate loop trail in Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve.
This trail goes by Borel Hill, Ancient Oaks Trail, Russian Ridge OSP Loop, and Bay Area Ridge Trail
There's usually ample parking in the Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve's Alpine Rd parking lot, where there is a restroom as well. Most of the trails are exposed, and recently performed trail work created more comfortable hiking surfaces when the rains begin. The views are always superb - from the ocean to the bay, from wooded to bare mountains. Sometimes one can spot a coyote or two roaming the trails, usually closer to the Eagle Scouts' built platform (near the communications tower at the north end of the preserve).
These trails are suitable for children, either hiking or biking, with their parents.
