While my daughter was on a school event, we took a nice scenic stroll through the park. Lots of hikers, bikers and a few runners.

Geocachers, come one, come all. There are caches to be found on these hiking trails. The theater is itself well worth seeing. Look for the connection to WPA! Ditto on the Joaquin Miller house. Plenty of paved paths and open space for fur babies. Plenty...More

Nice park in Oakland, good to be able to walk (or run) out into the forest and get away from it all.

This is something you would expect on the coast or in Marin county. Beautiful park in the Oakland hills. Parking free and convenient. Great place for family outings. Why drive to the coast when you have this here in the city?

This regional park is huge and full of hiking trails and nature, with some good view of the Bay. Popular and well-used.

Great trails and great views. As someone else mentioned the trails off of Skyline are great. Reasonably wide, winding through the Redwoods, brooks, great vistas of the Bay, Oakland and SF along the way. We keep our dogs on leash, some don't. Keep your eyes...More
