Los Vaqueros Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"You’ll start this hike at the County Line Staging Area and walk uphill on a hiking-only loop through cattle-grazed grassland. From a ridge at the hike’s high point, views extend to the reservoir, Mount Diablo, and the suburbs of the San Ramon valley. Bring binoculars to get a better look at the golden eagles that live in the area and are commonly spotted."
