East Bay Regional Park District 80 years logoYou have to hike or ride horseback to see this magnificent 9,737-acre parkland, accessible only by way of the Ohlone Wilderness Trail.

Its centerpiece is 3,817-foot Rose Peak, just 32 feet lower than Mount Diablo. Surrounding Rose Peak are grassy ridges, profusely flowered in season. The abundance of wildlife includes golden eagles, mountain lions, and tule elk. 

The Trail traverses 28 miles of mountains and canyons in southern Alameda County and is open to hikers and equestrians.

The Trail passes through the Ohlone Wilderness and three regional parks: Mission Peak Regional Preserve in Fremont, Sunol Regional Wilderness near Pleasanton and south of Sunol, and Del Valle Regional Park. It also passes through two watershed areas leased from the San Francisco Water Department.

It is very important to stay on the trail corridor in these leased areas and obey directional signs along the way. Trespassing off-trail into non-leased water department lands may result in citation and may jeopardize future public use of the leased lands.

Ohlone Wilderness Regional Trail Hiking Permit:
The Ohlone Wilderness Regional Trail Hiking Permit/Map (required for day use and camping) is available for $2 per person per year at the Sunol and Del Valle entrance kiosks, at the Coyote Hills Visitor Center in Fremont, at the Park District administration offices at 2950 Peralta Oaks Court in Oakland, and for $2.50 per person per year by mail. (Mailing address can be found on website listed above)

• Dogs welcome. Please be respectful and pick up after your dogs.
• Dogs are not allowed in the park after dark because of coyotes.

The Bay Area wouldn’t be what it is without its tawny, oak-studded hills, and we have the East Bay Regional Parks District to thank for keeping many of them accessible to the public. The district manages 65 parks spanning 114,000 acres in Alameda and Contra Costa counties, offering between them some 1,200 miles of dog-friendly trails. Away from developed areas, four-legged friends trained to come when called can trek with you leash freemore »

The East Bay Regional Park District, a network of 65 parks spanning Alameda and Contra Costa counties, is cherished by dogs and their people, and rightly so. Its 1,250 miles of trails dip and dive over 120,536 acres of open space and are enjoyed by hikers, bikers and equestrians as well as DogTrekkers grateful for the opportunity to disconnect from the leash. more »
With state finances in the pits and many state parks facing service reductions or even outright closure, it’s refreshing to know that forward-thinking Alameda and Contra Costa counties are home to  the largest urban park district in the United States.

Many of the 65 parks included in the East Bay Regional Parks District are not known outside the region; in fact, many Northern Californians don’t even know the EBPRPD exists. more »
