Let’s explore the Redwood Park in Oakland. Leisurely paced 6.5 mile loop with 1000 ft. elevation gain. I would rate this as moderate+ because there are a couple of spots with steep incline. Will start by Serpentine Prairie. (Intersection of Skyline and Joaquin Miller.)
Parking available in Richard Trudeau Center; additional parking on Skyline blvd. Hiking boots recommended. Bring poles if you have them.
Dogs are welcome; leash required on parts of the trail.
Will make a couple of restroom stops along the way. May take a quick snack break at half point.
