Description

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.
