Description

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. Lake Chabot features opportunities for boating, biking, fishing and picnicking. Swimming and water contact is not permitted since the lake serves as a backup water supply for the East Bay. The park hosts annual fishing derbies, and there are many fishing piers along the shoreline. Mountain biking is also a popular park activity, as the park features a bike loop above and around the lake, as well as an adventurous hiking loop that follows much of the shoreline. The marina area lawns and play areas make it a popular spot to have a family picnic or barbecue with friends. Park Hours: 6am to sunset (varies seasonally) Fees: Parking: $5/vehicle, $4/trailered vehicle, $25/bus. Dogs: $2/dog. Guide/service dogs free.
