Countryside Ambling

Part of Walnut Creek's network of open spaces, Lime Ridge offers outstanding hiking and mountain biking within easy reach of Easy Bay hubs. A variety of footpaths--the Blue Oak, Savannah, Buckeye, Manzanita, and others--provide access to the oak openings, chaparral, and grasslands of Lime Ridge, a northwestern spur of Mount Diablo edged on three sides by development.

Lime Ridge's sweeping prospects stretch from the Diablo Range out to San Francisco Bay, while closer-up glories include wildflowers, their dutiful pollinators, and the noble profiles of mature oaks. One thing's for sure: You'll be thankful city planners spared this swath of Bay Area foothills from the bulldozer!
