Dog-friendly Alameda County

Alameda County

Dog Friendly in Alameda CountyAlameda County—home to Berkeley, Emeryville, Oakland, Fremont, Hayward and Pleasanton, among other communities—is blessed with more dog-friendly public lands than most counties 10 times its size. Recreational opportunities are available on public lands in the expansive East Bay Regional Park System.

You can also enjoy off-leash privileges in the parks’ undeveloped areas. Redwood Regional Park is a cool sanctuary of giant trees, Tilden Regional Park, in the Berkeley Hills, is a 2,078-acre escape from urban life, and in Del Valle Regional Park, you can follow up a hike in the hills with a row in a rented boat. Designated dog parks also proliferate in this extremely dog-friendly county.

Dog-friendly Tri-Valley Region Trails

tri valley trails
The Bay Area’s Tri-Valley region, just 45 minutes east of San Francisco, is a sunny paradise for hiking dogs and their people, rewarding both with lots of wide open spaces and scenic vistas.

The four cities that make up the Tri-Valley region, Pleasanton, Danville, Dublin and Livermore, each have something special to offer DogTrekkers. What they all have in common is their proximity to the vast East Bay Regional Park system where dogs can hike with their people off-leash in many open space and undeveloped areas, provided they are under control at all times. more »
