Great park with lots of trails and beautiful scenery. There is also a small area for dogs to run around without a leash. Public restrooms are available. There is a nursery for plants on site as well. Amazing views of the bay. Highly recommended!
Wonderful park to hike, bike or run. Many trails, some flat, some steep. Heavily wooded - redwood, bay-laurel and eucalyptus. Many picnic areas and s big meadow.
Great trails. It's like being in an enchanted forrest. There's plenty to see. It's truly an adventure. Bring water and snacks......you might get lost.
Loved this spot! We usually go to the Tilden Regional Park, but that is a paved path.. so it feels more like a guided walk through nature, than a hike. My husband & I went for a hike here at Joaquin Miller Park over the weekend & it was incredible. Dirt paths, with trail leading into trail. Trees everywhere with beautiful views. Endless exploration. There were a lot of hikers & bikers on the trails we took, but not excessively crowded. We will definitely be back!
Nice dog park if you go there after 2:30 & on week ends. Lots of dog walkers mid day during the week, and if there are 3 dog walkers with 6 dogs each, and a few other folks with one or two dogs, it can be a little crazy and overwhelming. There's a smaller area for little dogs right next door, which is a good option if the dog walkers have taken over!
I love this park and so does my dog. She is a husky and loves to play with other dogs. We go to the dog park here and there are usually plenty of other dogs to play with. Dogs here are well trained and owners are couteous and nice. We usually play at the dog park for an hour then hike one of the awesome trails for an hour. Love this place!
Perfect for a small walk with incline. Extremely gorgeous views of the bay, San Francisco. Extremely dog friendly park, lots of off leash areas. There is also a memorials to Joaquin Miller along the way. There is also a nature walk that can be taken, along with the nursery where you can learn about the vegetation in the area. Tons of hiking trails.
Great for hiking, with streams inside shaded forest. Many different paths, with moderate elevation. The only thing to watch out are those fast moving bikes, but people are generally friendly and considerate.
Great trails, majestic redwoods, beautiful views. Hikers, runners, and bikers all sharing the trails in harmony (saw evidence of horses too but no actual animals). Worth a visit whether your a resident or just visiting the bay.
Lots of trails in a well-shaded, verdant redwood forest. Good for running or biking as well, but the trails tend to be a bit narrow and claustrophobic. There always seems to be a lot of people here regardless of the time or day, but because there are so many trails, you do have the opportunity for some solitude.
It was my first time here and I will be going back. Love the peace and quiet of the park. Is a great place to just be with your thoughts
Beautiful park just up the hill from Oakland. Good for a hike with your dog or a mountain bike ride on paths or single track. Views are outstanding!
Super fun park to ride your mountain bike lots of trails for all different levels beginners to advance technical trails. I love it. I make time to stop by once a week to stay in shape. Cant beat the views over the bay. Bring plenty water. Some narrow trails at the bottom part but still okay for a bike to go through. Mostly shaded areas but do bring sunblock during summer.
It is hard to believe a place like this exists just minutes from big, bad Oakland. The trees and streams remind me of a fairytale story and I expect elves and fairies to leap out from the bushes. There are hikers, joggers, and mountain bikers all enjoying the trail. The most annoying part is the people who don't leash up their dogs. Not everyone wants to trip over 15 dogs during their hike. I don't care how friendly you think your dog is, please do us all a favor and put a leash on it.
This park is only about 15 minutes from downtown Oakland, so it's very accessible. But you feel miles away from the city. We took the very scenic Sequoia Bayview Trail which was very flat, easy enough to do with a baby in a carrier, and provided some awesome views of the bay and time in some sequoia groves.
Pretty good park but some of the trails had too many bikers to safely hike them. And there was this cool/weird/very Oakland trance music blaring. I'm not saying I hated that, just wanted to mention it.
Great park. We have always loved coming here. It's good for little ones and bigger kiddos. It's a large park with lots to see and trails, stairs... Courts you name it.
Holy hell! This place is huge. We met a group playing loud music and assumed it was our group. We found out it was a Jamaican celebration. (Not our group.) We packed up our stuff and wandered a half a mile away to find our group. Which consisted of 100 adults or more. A DJ set up with loud music. We danced. Evidently this is something you can do here. Play Loud up until 8 p.m. . It was a really busy Park lot of bicycles really spread out, lots of outdoorsy places to be and find and discover.
Always love this place. Great view of the bay, awesome place for a picnic. Decent bathrooms, and a wonderful place for a walk amongst the trees and view, with a healthy set of stairs to climb if you desire. Multiple fountains, sometimes they're full and running, sometimes they're not. Children's playgrounds and ball field as well. This place has it all on the edge of Oakland's hills..
Wonderful forest space with many fitness options including stairs to run, bike paths, hiking trails, and also places to chill and enjoy the woods. Convenient street parking makes it easily accessible but also attracts more urban trash than other wooden refuges.
