*** IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT *** Let's take it a bit local and bestride some of the noble goats in the scenic Los Altos hillocks. We'll follow Westridge eastwards to return westward, then hop to Alpine East westward til it returns eastward. A long climb up Los Trancos Woods to the top of Verde Vista, then back down a little to ascend the daunting spectre of Ramona's fearsome heights. Come experience the ineluctable modality of the visible, if you dare! Drive to the start/finish at the Windy Hill Preserve parking lot from San Jose via 280 north. Exit onto Alpine Road; go west to Portola Road, turn right, drive about one mile to the Preserve on the left.
