Santa Teresa County Park: More Hiking

Rocky Ridge Trail

Today's hike leads from the Madrone day use area via Rocky Ridge Trail to Coyote Peak. The trail is quite rocky, but easy to navigate. It's a gentle climb from the parking lot to the peak with stunning views of the South Bay.

Coyote Valley is not far

Almost there

The descent from Coyote Peak to the parking lot via Hidden Springs Trail is much shorter and steeper than the way up, which worked out well for all of us. The round trip worked out to just over 4 miles.

Once again a nice morning hike in friendly company, and I was back home just in time for the first meeting of the day.
