City of Fairfield Open Space – Serpas Trail

Posted on 09 March 2010

I am constantly amazed at the hidden hiking treasures all around us. Last weekend, I hiked the Serpas Trail which is part of the City of Fairfield Open Space. I’ve included photos from the trail and a site map for the areas. The trail is off Sanctuary Drive in Rolling Hills. Nestled at the corner is a spacious parking lot. You hike along side the housing subdivision across a little bridge over the creek. A convenient hiking pass opens into an inviting cattle range.

The climb up to the ridge is moderate, but well worth the climb. There are meadows and a tranquil grove of trees. The views are stunning and hikers can view Twin Sisters and the valley floor. Mt. Diablo rose from the horizon. I traveled a loop of approximately 2 to 3 miles – very nice. I’m anxious to travel this trail again.

The park rangers at the City of Fairfield were fantastic to work with. They are helpful and informative. They are working to improve the trails. It was a real treat to hike this trail. Check out the photos and maps.
