Pleasanton Ridge

The Place


This beautiful 4,951 acre parkland is on the oak-covered ridge overlooking Pleasanton and the Livermore Valley from the West. Pleasanton Ridge has only one trailhead at the Southern edge of the park, so it appears heavily used. However, the further we hike the more solitude we will find. The park is exposed to the elements, so it is quick to dry after a rain. It is made up of scattered Oaks and undulating hills.


Getting There

Directions: From San Jose: Take I-680 N, exit Sunol Boulevard/Castlewood Drive (exit 25). Head west on Castlewood Drive and where the road splits stay to the right on Castlewood (it feels like you're turning off the main road). At the stop sign, turn left onto Foothill Road and drive about 1.6 miles, there is a large parking lot on the right side of the road.

Drive Time 45 Minutes - Parking Free - Dogs OK on leash
