Panoramic Ridge Trail: The most popular trail in Claremont Canyon is the Stonewall-Panoramic Ridge Trail, also referred to as the East/West Trail at its upper end. The trail starts at the Stonewall Road entrance to the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve and climbs steeply up the northern ridge of Claremont Canyon for about a half-mile, enabling hikers to enjoy spectacular vistas of almost the entire San Francisco Bay Region. The trail then levels out as it runs easterly for a half mile along the crest of ridge before beginning to climb steeply once again. Around this point, property ownership changes from the East Bay Regional Park District to UC Berkeley's Hill Campus (and the trail name changes to the East-West Trail). An unmarked, narrow side trail called the Side Hill Trail angles off to the right through a small stand of French broom then transverses to a relatively undisturbed south-facing slope that features a wonderful array of spring and early summer wildflowers, as it climbs gently to reach Grizzly Peak Boulevard at about 1,600 feet elevation. The Side Hill Trail intersects Grizzly Peak Boulevard about .8 miles north of Four Corners intersection with Claremont Avenue/Fish Ranch Road.
