I recently took a drive down Hwy 35, commonly known as Skyline, which runs along the ridge between The Bay and The Ocean. I was almost at the intersection with Hwy 9 when I spotted Long Ridge, and was compelled to pull over for a couple of miles walking.
I headed West towards the ocean, but only on a short loop, I was running out of daylight, and only had a flannel shirt as protection against the cool autumn air. I was delighted by what I found. The trail, unlike many hikes on the Peninsula, was mostly oak, very few pines of any sort and devoid of eucalyptus. I picked a counter clockwise loop that got a tough ascent in almost immediately, leaving everything else as level, or gentle grades.
The luxury of a midweek afternoon hike meant that I only encountered five people, and three of them were in the parking lot. There seemed to be a lot of parking, but I could imagine it filling up early in the morning at a weekend, especially if the sun was good.
This park has some dog accessible trails, and is used for cycling and horse riding on some of the trails, but there are plenty that are exclusively for hiking. I look forward to going back in the future.
