“Love there parks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Tilden Park in Berkeley is excellent! I enjoy hiking Redwood Park and Lake Chabot. They have a variety of parks to explore in Contra Costa and Alameda County anything you want from hanging out at a lake to some challenging hikes to bay views and bbq can be found within EPRPD boundaries!

“There are so many great parks to enjoy here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Hard to encompass them all - Sibley, Roberts, Huckleberry are some of the ones closest to me. I just like being in nature and am so grateful for this resource.

“I'm a volunteer for the Regional Parks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

I'm on the Trail Safety Patrol, so of course I go on the trails several days a week. There over 1000 miles of delightful trails with many different kinds of conditions to suit all sorts of hikers. It's particularly nice that when it is cold near the Bay one can often hike in warm conditions in the valleys, and when it's hot in the valleys one can find cool places near the Bay.

“Redwood Regional Park provides an alternative to Muir Woods to see redwoods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

If you're staying in Oakland & don't have time to travel to Muir Woods to see the redwood trees, Redwood Regional Park is a good alternative (plus it's a lot cheaper, they just charge $5 per car on weekends). Although the trees aren't as big or tall as the trees at Muir Woods, they are still large. Take the Stream Trail for an easy level trail by the redwoods. If you're looking for a more strenuous hike, take any of the other trails that offer changes in elevation.
