Ascent Trip ReportRamage Peak was virtually incidental to this ambitious 33-mile loop with 5,500' of overall elevation gain, beginning and ending at the MacDonald Staging Area at the intersection of the Skyline Tr and Redwood Rd between Redwood and Anthony Chabot Parks. The hiking route: MacDonald Staging Area-Golden Spike Tr-West Ridge Tr-Bridle Tr-Canyon Tr-East Ridge Tr-Redwood Tr-Canyon Rd-Valle Vista Staging Area-Kings Canyon Loop-Rocky Ridge Tr-Rocky Ridge Loop-Kaiser Creek Crossing-Ramage Peak Tr-RAMAGE PEAK-Chabot Staging Area. At this point, slowing down and with 11 miles still to go, another hiker and I got a ride back from here to our cars with Kate McKillop's daughter's boyfriend, who had brought much welcomed water and lemonade for all of us at Chabot. 22 miles on the trail was plenty for me today.
