Redwood Regional Park : Oakland California

While visiting Berkeley earlier this year I was surprised to learn that one of my old friends from my good old times in Taiwan is living with her family at the Oakland area not too far away from campus. The next day following a heartwarming reunion, we set off to explore some of the famous national trails to see some of the oak forests.

I think we explored the Redwood Regional Park, with a relatively short circular path called the Stream Trail, that was easy enough for lazy people like myself and the baby we had with us. Cold shaded February chilled forest proved much nicer than I thought. I could definitely get used to walks like these if I were to live in the area.

Magical, isn’t it? 😛

 

The BA hikers note :

Redwood Regional Park has some beauties, plus there’s chaparral, a stream where trout spawn, an incredible variety of plants, and a terrific trail system, with plenty of paths just for hikers.

Redwood is a large park with a few major trailheads, and many minor ones.

Once inside Redwood Park, myriad loops are possible. The easiest hike starts at the Canyon Meadow Staging Area and is a simple flat out-and-back stroll on shady Stream Trail.

 

Here’s a bit more from the trail:

I’m honestly not 100% sure where we started from, but I think it’s from here :

 

Great area. Hope to make it back to explore more some day. Maybe with Berkeley 😛
