HIKING DESCRIPTION:
Rockville Hills Regional Park in Fairfield is a walk among oak woodlands and grasslands in the rolling hills. After we paid the park entrance fee, we will hike up and down up to 6 miles on the rolling hills while we enjoy green grass, a variety of oak trees and shurbs, and the overviews of Fairfield, Suisun Bay, and the surrounding valley to the south. Near the end of the hike, there are tiny caves to explore in the park, which is optional.
