Dog friendly Hike in the Redwood Park in Oakland..Moderate+

Please use the Google Maps link above to familiarize yourself with the trip and explore various route options from your home. 

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.

    Great effort everyone in the heat. The next one is the Saturday after this Saturday on June 18. It is two miles longer, but has less elevation gain and mostly shaded. See you all there. :)

    Great trail. Mostly shade. Thanks to our lead and sweep we were nicely paced. Loved this loop. Redwoods definitely a bonus with temp over 90.
