Located in Las Trampas Regional Park, this is a very accessible and enjoyable hike in the East Bay with scenic viewpoints of Mount Diablo and the Oakland Hills.

Turn right on Rocky Ridge Trail for .38 miles and turn left on Elderberry for 1.67 miles mostly through the woods. At the bottom where there are picnic tables, turn left for .37 back to the parking lot.

The trail begins at the end of Bollinger Canyon Road at the Las Trampas Staging Area. Parking is free. 

Start with the Rocky Ridge View Trail for the first .8 miles, this trail is paved. At the top of the ridge, follow the Ridge Trail for ~.80 miles and enjoy the view that your hard work earned! Turn right onto Sycamore Trail and observe some crazy rock formations for 1.2 miles until you get to a creek in the bottom of the canyon. Cross the creek and turn left onto Devil' Hole Trail - the next 1.3 miles is steep as it climbs back up to Rocky Ridge. Take a right on Rocky Ridge trail, and turn left on Elderberry trail for 1.67 miles through a beautiful forest. When you reach the picnic tables, turn left for the final ~.40 miles back to the parking lot.
