An easy paved trail through a canyon in the middle of Piedmont. There is a beautiful stream with a half dozen little waterfalls through it. It is also an off-leash area for dogs. It's especially nice for that since there's not much poison oak in this park (which is common to this area). Strollers and bikes aren't a good choice with all the steep stairs. The park above is beautiful and manicured, but the canyon trail is left more natural and is entirely covered from direct light by huge trees. Great for a quick scenic walk.
