There are over 1,000 miles of trails in all types of terrain, so check online for 1 or 2 that suit you. Be aware that many of the parks... More

I’ve visited a number of the parks and trails in the East Bay Regional Park District over the years, most recently enjoying May afternoon walks on the Contra Costa Canal Trail and the new George Miller Trail. Briones Regional Park remains my favorite component of the district system, and I especially like to be there when the raptor migration is... More

My husband and our two dogs stayed at the Anthony Chabot campground, and had a very good experience. The sites had space and some had a lot of privacy. The bathrooms were clean and had a great shower. Lovely view and only a few miles from San Fransisco.

There is no way to describe just how wonderful the Park District is. It is a greenbelt that surround the east bay cities, and it is wilderness. Wonderful trails, stunning views.

The East Bay Regional Park system is beautiful and well maintained system of trails throughout hills of Alameda County to Contra Costa county. I have been walking the trails in Sibley Park mainly for over 15 years. Unfortunately over the past five years or so, the park has become the place for hired dog-walkers to take their dogs. It's a...

I ran the trails for years with three different dogs and the dogs loved the trails as much as I did. People are friendly and helpful to each other. It's total freedom walking or running through Redwood Park. Springtime paints the hillsides with Chinese Forget-me-nots, poppies, lupine, buttercups and tons more. Visit their website for a wildflower identification guide.

East Bay Regional Park district is actually a string of contiguous parks -- preserved land running along the ridge to the east of Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, and further south. It is accessed in many places, especially from Grizzly Peak Drive in Berkeley and Skyline Blvd. in Oakland. In addition, it includes protected watershed areas around the East Bay's... More

More than 40 units of the East Bay Regional Parks are spangled across Alameda and Contra Costa Counties east of San Francisco Bay. Roberts Regional Recreation Area keeps the City of Oakland from spilling over the East Bay Hills into the town of Orinda while offering protection for second growth redwood forest and California oak. These lands provide habitat for... More

EBRPD has the most interesting areas to walk, hike and take your dog off-leash. These lands owned by the Park District keep expanding to ensure that all residents of the East Bay have access to nature.
