Redwood Regional Park, part of the East Bay Regional Park District, is located in the Oakland Hills just a few miles from downtown Oakland in the San Francisco Bay Area. The main park entrance is located off of Redwood Road. The park is known for the old growth redwood forest that was once an extensive logging operation. This redwood forest is now the largest remaining natural stand of coast redwood in the East Bay. Hiking, trail running, mountain biking, and horseback riding, are popular activities in this park. There are several trail heads that access the park, including the Canyon Meadow Staging Area, Skyline Gate Staging Area, and the Redwood Gate Staging Area. Popular trails in the park include the East Ridge Trail and West Ridge Trail, which allow bikes, the stream trail, and the French Trail. The park has four picnic sites, several group overnight camping areas, and a children's play structure off of the Stream Trail from the Canyon Meadow staging area. The Chabot Space and Science Center is also located within the park. Redwood Regional Park is great for nature watching. The park is home to a variety of species, including some rare species, such as the golden eagle and common species like deer, raccoons, and squirrels.

Beautiful hike just 15 min from downtown Oakland. Went in early March and it was VERY muddy but passable. Some good up and down elevation makes it a nice workout. Free parking in the lot- was tight on the weekend but able to snag a spot even in late morning.

2 hour hike, and still good during rain with mud. I've done this hike 3 times and enjoyed it.


Gorgeous redwoods. Lots of shade, some sun openings.
Parking lot opens at 8am

Plenty of shade throughout the trail. Hidden gem .

One of my favorite trails in the bay area. A mix of quiet, open, canopy, rolling, steep ascent/descents, usually less than a dozen hikers if you stay off Stream trail. More traffic along West Ridge. Good tread except in rainy season, so good 9-10 months every year.

Ran it Saturday, March 9, 2019 and it was muddy but not too bad. Great loop. A keeper.

Magical wonderland, even (especially?) in the rain. Redwoods galore, misty lookouts, mossy trees, mushrooms!

This trail was muddy and pretty slippery at points, but still really gorgeous!

We did this a week after heavy rains. The stream was alive and the redwoods and ferns looked happy. Stream trail/Mill trail/Madrone are mostly shaded up until the peak where it connects to West Ridge. We backtracked there because it was getting late and we had lost track of time. This may have gotten 4 stars if West Ridge has a view, so we’ll update next time. Stream Trail is mostly flat and muddy, highly trafficked, and nice redwoods. Mill trail and Madrone are intermediate climbs, you’ll get a workout but nothing super strenuous. There are several bathrooms near the beginning of Stream trail. I love how close this park is and all the trail possibilities!

Went with Lucinda. Really great forest. Streams. Mud. Ups and downs.

Trail takes you a little over 800ft and is about 3.2 miles. Higher and longer than what’s described but a beautiful trail!

Very nice trail but muddy. Don't worry about the mud if you have the right shoes. It's a real workout up hill if you walk clockwise starting from Skyline gate staging area and enter Stream trail and exit West Ridge trail. I didn't give 5 stars because the trail was missing some excitement or thrill factor for me. It's a overall nice walk.

Beautiful little hike.

If you’re looking for an idyllic, rich, redwood trail, this is the place. This route is fairly long, letting you experience several types of terrains. All spectacular.

We visited during winter, so the trail was pretty muddy. The incline and slickness make hiking boots a must.

Super fun trail run or easy-moderate hike. Lots of shade but a few stretches to enjoy sun as well. Beautiful views of the bay. Free parking along the road. Muddy patches but doable in sneakers currently.

Great way to see Redwood Regional without missing the Stream Trail.

beautiful redwoods, creek and ladybugs

Pretty easy trail, lots of coverage: red woods, eucalyptus and more. If you go counter clockwise it’s pretty flat until the end. Don’t love that it goes right by chabot, I’d rather not see the outside world during my nature time but you pass it fairly quickly. Lots of dogs off leash.

Pretty easy trail with some elevation gain but nothing too strenuous. Very well marked.

This is a wonderful area to Explore due to the Many Trails that loop and intersect each other. it was a very wooded trail with lots of greenery to look at I do suggest getting here early due to the popularity of the park

beautiful but a little muddy
