Redwood Regional Park Hike

Let's go for a hike at Redwood Regional Park, which is home to Oakland's very own redwood forest.

We'll meet at the Skyline Gate Staging Area and set out on a 5.3-mile easy-to-moderate hike. Bay Area Hiker has a guide to a shorter hike that will give you an idea of what to expect. Although subject to change, we'll plan on taking this route.

If we stick exactly to the planned 5.3-mile route, the hike will take 2 hours plus stop time. We'll admire the scenery along the way and pause for a snack break.

What to bring: Water, snacks, and hiking shoes/boots. Although the trees offer some shade, sun protection (sunblock, hat, sunglasses, etc.) is recommended. Also, please be aware that poison oak may be present in some locations. You are responsible for your own well being.

Optional: After the hike, we will get lunch together. Location TBD but most likely in the nearby Montclair neighborhood.

Carpooling: The trailhead is not accessible by public transit. Use this carpool document if you would like to arrange a ride.

    I will be wearing an Indiana Jones style hat and reddish pants. My phone number is on the carpool doc if you need it, but it should be easy for you to find the group.

    Hey folks, you should remember to figure out how you're getting there--I almost forgot to sign up for a car pool and that would've sucked. Perhaps this message will save another forgetful person without a car.

      Please use the carpool doc (link at bottom of event description) to arrange rides. It's a centralized place to refer to and cuts down on e-mails. Thanks.

      I have to recind my offer to provide carpooling. My auto is in the shop over the weekend (mechanic went on vacay today through Sunday!). So I will be without auto transport until Monday, which is fine as I bike, bus & Bart it mostly anyways... Still coming of course...

    Reminder: Please keep your RSVP up to date. There is a waiting list for this event.

      P.S. There are 25 people signed up and only 5 names on the carpool doc. I don't have a math degree, but that sounds like a lot of cars for a trailhead parking lot!

    Hi. Are dogs allowed on this hike? :)

    June 27

    • David

      Well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome. We will be hiking on the Stream Trail, which has a strict requirement that dogs stay on leash and on trail.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
