HIKE #22: Redwood Regional Park to Chabot Regional Park (23-May-2005)

ON THIS sunny and warm day, Dena and Robin (and Shasta) were the lone BAR-trail hikers on this section. It feels good to be making southerly and very visible progress. We are really moving -- new vistas are opening up! This 8.3-mile section of trail is also part of the 31-mile long East Bay Skyline Trail. It is well marked and highly varied, with cool redwood groves, oak woodlands, chaparral, open grasslands, and eucalyptus. Although there were lots of people (dogs, hikers, strollers) on the first part of the trail, we didn’t see anyone after we got to Chabot.
