Notice: Due to the potential presence of toxic algae at Shinn pond and we recommended that you keep dogs away from the water.

Alameda Creek is Alameda County's largest, and is home to a host of birds and other wildlife.

Alameda Creek Regional Trail follows the banks of Alameda Creek in southern Alameda County from the mouth of Niles Canyon (in the Niles District of Fremont) westward to San Francisco Bay — a distance of 12 miles. The dog-friendly trail is accessible from several thoroughfares in the Fremont, Union City and Newark areas.

Both north-side trail and south-side trail are wheelchair accessible. The south-side trail is paved and the north-side trail is unpaved.

Downloadable trail maps, brochures and mileage charts are available for each regional park and regional trail. Trails that allow dogs can be found here, while a list of parks can be found here.

Unless otherwise posted or permitted, open between 5 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• If in off-leash area, keep your dog under voice command
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
• Pack in and pack out, leaving only paw prints
