The hike

A great hike through nice cool shaded groves. A great choice for a hot day. Briones peak offers views from 1483 feet.

Discover this 3.9-km loop trail near Pacheco, California. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1 h 17 min to complete. This is a very popular area for birding, hiking, and horseback riding, so you'll likely encounter other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime.

Dogs are welcome and must be on a leash no longer than 6-foot long.

The trail

Take Alhambra Creek Trail To the Spengler Trail. Take Spengler to the Old Briones Road Trail. Continue to Briones Crest Trail to the Summit. There are many other trails in the area where you can deviate from if you wish.
