Kennedy Grove Regional Recreation Area offers a comfortable setting for either small or large group picnics (some by reservation) or informal gatherings of friends and families.

This was pretty fun. The walk up is pretty steep and strenuous, but once you get to the highest point it's all easy from there. It may be a little hard for kids, with the steep hills. I wish once you got to the top there was more trails to see more of the dam, but it is better than nothing. We had a great time. seen some small lizards and thankfully no rattlesnakes, although there are many signs for them.

I started on the Kennedy Creek Trail, continued onto the Black Oak Trail loop, on the way back I climbed the Upper Seafoam Trail and went down on the Lower Seafoam Trail and then I took the Laurel Loop Trail. For a total distance of 3.3 miles with elevation of 833 feet. It was short but intense. There was few muddy spots on the trails. It was a good workout and some scenery on the top with the view of the San Pablo Reservoir. At this time of year the parking was free. From April to October there is a parking fee for $5.

Nice little trail that I enjoyed doing a long time ago. I forgot finding it until I came across it here. Found it exploring on the motorcycle.

Great beginner hike. Good elevation and descents to keep you interested. Nice views - good mix on sun / shade.
Parking is $5.

Nice mix of shade and sunny spots on the trail. Scenic views once you get up the hill. Fun hike to bring your dog on but watch out for the poison oak.

Great run! Experienced a burn running uphill! Only tracked half of my experience.

Perfect amount of distance and pitch. Don't know if I'd call this "easy." You'll work up a sweat on the way up. Nice greenery, flowers and a view of the reservoir.

For increased distance and challenge I started the Laurel Loop Trail from the Bay Area Ridge Trail; then onto the Kennedy Creek Trail, the Upper Sea Foam Trail, and then headed back to the Laurel Loop Trail. The view to the San Pablo Reservoir was breathtaking.
