Ascent Trip Report

An average Bay Area open space walk with a high point as the objective. The peak is non-descript, but has nice views. Part of the route is a trail along the ridge between Walnut Creek and Lafayette and it has pleasant views - reminds me a bit of the views around Ashville, NC.

This trip started from Rossmoor which is a gated community and so a problem to get into unless you know someone who lives there. (Such as me?) Otherwise, there are many other ways to get up Las Trampas.
