The East Bay hills have great hiking with beautiful views and a second growth redwood forest with huge trees that grow where the original trees were cut, so you can see how massive the primeval trees were. Hiking goes for miles.

If you're in the east bay, this park has many trails of varying length, and is great for a stroll in the woods. Why drive to Muir Woods when this is in your backyard?!

The valley extends in the north-to-south direction, where the head of the valley is located at the northern end,... More
