Revis Mountain Trail

There are two trails over Revis Mountain that criss-cross.
• A popular approach to the Revis Mountain hikes is Blue Heron Way at the north end. There are a few spots to park around the edge of the cul-de-sac, but DO NOT park in the cul-de-sac itself because there are driveways to homes off it, and it's also a helicopter landing pad. The hike goes past the water tank, past some large rocks to the ridge, and a panoramic view. The first 60 to 90 yards is steep; after that it meanders up and down through meadows and a view of YLP all around and mountains in the distance — on clear days from the Sierras to the coastal ranges. To the south, the trail crosses an east-west fire road that also can be walked. But the north-south trail continues south through more oak openings and meadows until it reaches a steep dropoff just east of Cedar Grove Court.
• Another approach starts at the Revis Lane East fire road and goes over to North Dome Road near Quail Court. Both of the trail starts are steep ascents, but once you reach the ridge 1/2 mile up, you have a mile of fairly flat expanse with a panoramic 360 degree view of the area, well worth the climb. At the ridge there is an equestrian trail that goes either way, a perfect spot for a picnic. Remember, pack it in and pack it out. This is also a trail where you might want to take two cars and park one on Quail Court so you don’t have to hike back. Quail Court and Revis Lane East are cul-de-sacs, so have limited parking, but could accommodate three cars. The trail head on North Dome east of Quail Court is the fire road.
