Pleasanton Ridge and Olive Oil Ranch - Starting at Foothill staging area we will climb to the top of Pleasanton ridge. About 1,000 feet elevation gain. Follow the Ridgeline trail north and return via Thermalito Trail. Then we will visit the Olive Oil Ranch for tasting and a history lesson of this 130 year old ranch from its owner. The hike will be 7 miles and moderate to strenuous. We will return to the parking lot via the Woodland Trail.
