We lived in Dublin in the year 2013-2014 and the trail was right next to the apt complex. My husband would go run everyday and I'd join him on weekends with our then 3-4 month old baby. The trail being close by was the biggest advantage of living there. It's a nice long trail, with lot of shady stretches which... More

It is well paved, mostly flat, and connects to many coffee shops, restaurants and parks. Very easy for anyone to go out and walk, run, bicycle, horse ride, etc. Note that it does cross many roads, so you will have to wait at the light to cross. Another thing is that there is a speed limit. It is not suitable... More

This is a hidden treasure that most locals don't take advantage of. You can start in Pleasanton and ride your bike 36 miles all the way to concord! Lots of great stops along the way! You get to see a part of the valley few people do.

Walked around 5 miles on this trail while visiting Dublin. Saw lot of cyclists on the trail and it looked good for a ride / jog / run. Would love to explore the full trail on my next visit. Wish I had something like this closer home.

This paved Regional Parks Trail is a wonderful trail for families including dog walkers! We walk into Walnut Creek and back into Danville for breakfast or lunch or bike ride for a nice arerobi workout. The views are amazing and you get a peek of Mt. Diablo on frosty days with a hint of the snow capped mountain. Beautiful and... More

They have just recently extended this trail, which I believes go from Pleasanton to Walnut Creek. It is a fun bike ride and great exercise. Good even for a short walk with the family.

the iron horse trail runs from pleasanton to concord, for 25 miles. it's a nice paved trail that's great for walking, running and biking (if you are not a serious cyclist). the trail goes through the various towns so you have lots of opportunity to stop for food or drinks.
