Alpine Pond Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"An amazing resource so close to the frantic traffic and urban sprawl of Silicon Valley, the patchwork of public lands that make up the South Skyline Regional Open Space Preserves are crisscrossed with enough trails to make everyone happy. This hike skirts picturesque Alpine Lake before climbing a grass-and-oak-covered ridge to some impressive panoramas of the western Santa Cruz Mountains. This trail is part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail network."
