Hike or ride to the highest point on the Ridge Trail. The trip begins at the Jacques Ridge parking site in Sierra Azul Open Space Preserve southeast of Los Gatos. you'll follows Wood Road, Barlow Road and the new singletrack Mt Umunhum Trail to the top of Mt Umunhum. It's a long (8.5 miles one-way) haul for hikers, but can be shortened by parking at the Bald Mountain staging area on Mt Um Road instead of Jacques Ridge. Cyclists can make a loop by ascending Mt Um Road instead of the trails (or climbing the trails and descending the road). Note that Mt Um Road is now open to public vehicles all the way to the summit.
