In Anthony Chabot Regional Park visitors can explore miles of beautiful hiking, riding, and bicycling trails through grasslands, chaparral, and shady eucalyptus groves or along the shores of Lake Chabot.
Nice short walk. The start of the trail can only be reached via windy and scenic Redwood Road, which can be fun depending on what you're into. This trail offers a nice mixture of scenery. The grass valley portion goes through a more open area as the name suggests and then Brandon trail goes through a scenic tree line. So you will be out in the sun for half the time and in the shade for the other half. I passed one bicyclist and three other hikers so there is some light traffic along the trail. The far end runs adjacent to the Chabot bike loop. If you need to cut your hike short, you can cross over via Red Tail trail. Horses also frequent these trails, so watch your step!
Nice hike with some good views. The climb up from the parking lot was rather muddy as it had just rained the day before and that area doesn't get any sun. But once I crested the hill, the path was dry and opened up to some nice views. There are a few benches along the trail if you want to take a break and enjoy the scenery. I encountered a lot of dogs off leash. Some owners had their dogs under control, some not so much.
