Shiloh Ranch Regional Park for a relaxing and short ramble! (Good Exercise)

Ahhhhh....this is a great place to wander around! It's a quick mellow walk around Shiloh Ranch Regional Park. Our pace will be relaxed and steady. It's about 3.5 miles with an elevation gain of around 600 feet. This will probably take us less than 2 hours to do. It's a great way to start your day! It's short and will leave you with plenty of time to continue onto a productive remainder of the day.

We head out on Big Leaf Trail and quickly take a left onto Creekside trail for a walk up a canyon under shady pines and oaks. After leaving the canyon we enter a grassy valley complete with a scenic pond. We continue up the Ridge trail and take a left on South Ridge trail to reach the top of the park and the vista area. We then continue down on South Ridge to Big Leaf trail to reach the parking area. This hike does have hills but they are gradual and somewhat rolling. As long as you are comfortable with hiking on trails and hills this is a great hike for the beginning to intermediate hiker.

It's a short hike, but as always it is a good idea to come prepared with the following:

  • Water
  • Sunblock/Hat
  • Layered clothing as it will start off cool but quickly warm up!
  • Comfortable walking shoes

FYI--THERE IS A $7.00 PARK ENTRY FEE TO PARK AT THIS PARK. Thank you for supporting our park system!

    Chilly but what a great jumpstart to my day. It's 3:30 and I've accomplished everything I set out to do today with that amazing energy burst I got from the hike! Nothing like the cold to really get you going! Thank you all so much for joining me today!

    I was there at 8:25, yellow wind breaker and poles. I left at 8:45 and completed the hike. My GPS did not have the road you mention. I'll bet there are multiple parking lots. One on the "main drag" the other hidden. It was early and no one to ask. See you next time. Would like to do Sunday Jan 13 but its closed to RSVP.

      I can add you for Sunday...just for next time so you will know...the parking lot we use is the main parking lot and very visible from the road. You would be able to see us from the road as well as from inside the parking area.

      Hi DeseC...is it possible you arrived late? We were there! Quite a group...it would have been hard to miss us! Hope to see you on a hike soon!
