Pleasanton Ridge

Tracing means hiking every trail in a park. It was formerly known as redlining, but was changed, as redlining is also the name for a racially motivated form of exclusionary zoning.

As Pleasanton Ridge my “home” park, I set out to trace it. I had traced the whole park at one point, but with the opening of the Sunol Ridge, I have a bit more hiking to do. I have lots of memories hiking here as a kid, running here in high school, working here as a summer camp counselor, and so much more. Pleasanton Ridge has a special place in my heart.
