Lucky to find a parking space at the tiny Rhus Ridge Trailhead. Pleasant meandering hike to the (crowded) summit on a somewhat hot day. Nice views.

boyblueNice Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2016


I'm glad I was successful, because this park is way too crowded for me. I was lucky to find a parking spot at sunrise- 6:45am. No bathrooms at trailhead. No privacy along the trail. Creativity is obligatory.

Up via PG & E trail; down via Upper and Lower Meadows Trails. Outstanding views of the southern Bay Area.

It was a nice hike on a moist, cloudy day. (Up on Rhus ridge and black mountain trail, down on the quarry trail, upper meadow trail, etc.)

I've been up here more times than I can count but I'm pretty sure this is the date of my first summit. Gotta log it...

LincolnBNice run  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2011


Have done this many times, most recently with my older son. The peak is just the highest bump on a ridge, but the hike from Rhus ridge makes for a long, beautiful workout run. Rhus ridge parking is very small; we had to park at Foothill college about a mile away.

tyler4588Morning Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 30, 2010


Came from the Monte Bello trailhead. It was pretty crowded for the middle of winter. It's a good way to start a morning, especially in the winter when everything is moist. Good views of the Diablo range and the south bay. Did some other hills in the area before I got rained on.

fun hike, a good trail to train on, Monte Bello just takes a little longer to get to than the other hiking areas in the Santa Cruz mountains.

Zhenya77Black Mountain (Trail Run)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 19, 2008


It is a great trail run, especially early in the morning. I once came across a mountain lion, about a year ago. I am stiil trying to improve my run time. So far it is 45 min from the paring lot to the top of the peak.
