West Ridge Trail, California

   
This backpacking trail has a total elevation difference of 651 feet, and that is lower than average. With its 7.8 miles of walking distance it's an average length backcountry trail. This is a backcountry hiking trail that is quite long, so do pack enough food to last the whole trip. West Ridge Trail is a two ended backpacking trail with two trailheads which means you have the option of trekking it one way if you have someone to pick you up at the other end. This trek shouldn't take more than 7 hours, but of course some folks walk a bit slower and some a bit faster. The backcountry trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time which means the conditions are about the same from start to finish. This neighborhood does get very dry sometimes, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out.
