On the way south we hiked Pleasanton Ridge.
The trails at Pleasanton Ridge look much like Briones, but the views are unique. The snow from Sunday added a special element to the distant ridges.
I've thought about riding here but every decent trail is marked "no bicycles". I find that odd considering that horses are permitted.
