Windermere Ridge Trail
Crosby Rd, San Ramon, CA 94582, United States
Windermere Ridge Trail is a challenging trail for experienced hikers. The moderate to difficult trails are perfect on a nice day, but if you're looking for something more challenging, Windermere Ridge Trail is the one for you. This trail's difficulty level makes it perfect for people who are in good shape and love to hike up mountains. With steep inclines and tons of switchbacks, this trail can be quite exhausting so make sure to come prepared with plenty of water and snacks!
This park offers picnic tables and BBQ grills for visitors who want to stay awhile after their hike or just want a break while they watch their kids play in this large open space with lots of grassy areas and shade trees. There are also playgrounds, restrooms, water fountains, as well as bike racks available throughout the park if you plan on biking instead.
FIRST-AID KIT LIST WHEN HIKING
Band aids and moleskin for blisters.
Benadryl for allergic reactions or insect bites.
Aspirin if you have a headache, fever, or are feeling nauseous.
Ibuprofen to take care of any aches or pains that may be the result of your hike!
Sunscreen to help prevent sunburn from overexposure in the summer months.
Lip balm with SPF protection is recommended as well because the sunshine can be relentless on your lips! Keep them hydrated before they start cracking and bleeding due to dryness like mine did today
Lotion after hiking since it will make you feel less sore so get your muscles back in tip top shape!
Safety pins to keep your clothing from getting caught on things.
Tweezers or a tick removal tool if you are going somewhere with lots of wooded areas where ticks may live! And make sure they're up to date before going out into the woods so you don't get any diseases that could affect your health and well being for years to come like Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Encephalitis, TBEs (Tick Borne Enkephalin), etc.
WHAT ABOUT TRAIL ETIQUETTE?
The trail is not a sidewalk so please be courteous to other hikers by staying on the side of the path.
Notify someone if you are injured and cannot continue hiking as soon as possible, preferably before continuing your hike since it's important that you give yourself enough time to get back down safely!
If there are dogs present at Windermere Ridge Trail please keep them leashed but they must also have their rabies vaccination up to date in order for children under 12 years old to play with them.

Please don't litter because this affects our environment negatively, and there are trash cans available throughout the park.
Please be mindful of wildlife at Windermere Ridge Trail by not feeding them because it may cause a nuisance for other visitors and you don't want to get bitten or scratched.
