Couldn't even go on the trails bc they all require permits. That you have to get from other parks.

You can do bear Creek Trail without a permit but to do the backside of Briones Res you have to have a EBMUD permit that you can get at their office on the way to San Pablo Res nearby. Cheap and well worth it and is good for several years and allows others to go with you. The loop around the lake is 16 miles I think and is a great hike.
