What we're about

This group used to be called "Anthony Chabot and Redwood Afternoon Hikes". A great majority of hikes will still be in the parks below, but I've decided to change the name to allow me more leeway (I'll also occasionally schedule hikes that aren't in the afternoon)

Anthony Chabot (+Lake Chabot)
Redwood Regional Park
Joaquin Miller Park

Anthony Chabot information:

• Park includes Lake Chabot, which is probably the most beautiful part of the park

• Extends from marina entrance in Castro Valley, all the way to Redwood Road in Oakland

• Park information (includes decent quality map): https://www.ebparks.org/parks/anthony_chabot/

• High quality map (might take awhile to load): https://www.ebparks.org/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=24139

Redwood Regional Park information:

• Park is a combination of the oak habitat also seen in Anthony Chabot, and cluster of new growth redwoods (best seen along Stream Trail, French Trail, or Redwood Bowl area)

• Extends from Redwood Road in Oakland (adjacent to Anthony Chabot), to Pinehurst Road (adjacent to Huckleberry Botanic Preserve)

• Park information (includes decent quality map): https://www.ebparks.org/parks/redwood/

• High quality map (might take awhile to load): https://www.ebparks.org/civicax/filebank/blobdload.aspx?BlobID=24397

Joaquin Miller Park information:

• Park is adjacent to Redwood Regional Park along Skyline Blvd in Oakland, but unlike Redwood and Anthony Chabot, which are owned by EBParks, this park is owned by the city of Oakland.

• Some hikes might combine Redwood and Joaquin Miller along the Skyline Blvd interface, so if you like to bring a physical map, you'll have to bring 2 maps.
