This loop around the San Pablo and Briones Reservoir is intended as a road cycling trip, but there are hiking trails on the south side of the reservoirs that can be done on foot. Enjoy the scenic lake views. Going clockwise connect Bear Creek Rd with San Pablo Dam Rd and Castro Ranch Rd, Return via Alhambra Valley Rd.

Goofed up map with an incorrect distance if it was true. I've done Briones a few times and I think it's 16 by itself and I've done most of the length of San Pablo.
