Skyline Ridge and Russian Ridge Open Space Preserves Professional Review and Guide
"Enjoy the Peninsula’s finest views and most spectacular spring wildflower displays on these ridgeline trails through Skyline Ridge and Russian Ridge Open Space Preserves. Climb through open grasslands to high knolls on trails that vary in surface from duff- covered to gravelly or rocky, and in width from narrow (hikers only) to wide, paved and unpaved ranch roads. Expect gradual ridgetop elevation gains and loses. These exposed ridgetops can be foggy and windy; trails on south- and west-facing slopes offer only intermittent shade."
