Explore the most popular mountain biking trails near Orinda with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Pretty panoramic views of LaMorinda, but zero shade. Mostly asphalt too which made the trail very hot on an otherwise mild day - it was too hard on my dog and we had to turn back sadly. I’d recommend saving this one for a cool or foggy day. There was ample parking at the trail head.

Beautiful trail, hilly but a lot of great views!

Views are spectacular. Steady downhill grade, steeper near the end).

Hiked every foot of Briones multiple times... My go to for 10 yrs.

This trail takes you along the private section of Donald Drive. It offers great views of the area and is completely paved. Because the path is relatively smooth, you could ride a bike here if you wanted to. There is no shade whatsoever.

Trail that we did was actually 9.7 miles but great workout up and down fire trails. Gorgeous and not heavily trafficked. Would be super hot in summer given there's not much shade. Plus we saw a puppy golden retriever at the end....so worth it obviously.

I started from Briones Road, at about half mile I turned left to the Black Oak Trail, hiked up to the Mott Peak Trail, turned right and continued onto the Briones Crest Trail and to the Table Top Trail. I then took the Crescent Ridge Trail and it became the Seaborg Trail which led me back to the parking lot. My total distance was 7.2 miles with elevation of 1273 feet for a total of 3 hours (moving time was two and half hours). There few muddy spots here and there but overall it was a great hike with lots of scenery views.

I took the Seaborg Trail and hiked up to the Crescent Ridge Trail and back. For a total of 3.8 miles I finished in little more than an hour. Got some good workout with some fantastic sunset view on the way.

Longer loop that is less traveled than most of the trails on the Reliz Valley Rd side. A good cardio and a good place to put some miles on with less people

Came early on a Saturday morning, standing on top of the cloud, absolutely amazing views! A small part of the trail is strenuous, without the app I will for sure get lost.

Can be pretty hot in open places. Neat views and lovely wide sections under big canopy
