The hike
There were 5 of us for last week’s hike at Long Ridge. Long Ridge is a hike I’m liking a little more every time we do it. The half of the loop on the bay side of the ridge doesn’t have a lot of spectacular views, but it does have a lot of traffic, mostly in the form of bicycles. The ocean side, however, has plenty of spots with pretty nice views. It was surprising to find that the climb was over 700 feet, but when you do that over a 5 mile trek, it’s not much of a climb at all. The trails were all well maintained with very little encroaching poison oak and almost totally covered.
