A hike of the Oakland hills Redwoods in EBRPD Redwood Regional and Joaquin Miller Parks. Your choice hikes of a
Moderate 6.2 mile, 1100 ft gain, or

Starting from the Redwood Bowl Staging area we head East turning left, crossing Roberts Ridge Trail, then right down into the Redwood Bowl. Turning right, past the restrooms, we head along the meadow to a slight left onto the West Ridge Trail. We follow the West Ridge Trail for about 1.5 mile where the shorter hike turns right on Tate Trail following it down to the Golden Spike Trail near the Piedmont Stables. After a sharp right on Golden Spike Trail, we follow it past the Montiero Trail junction through the Redwoods to Dunn Trail. Turning right on Dunn Trail, we follow it 0.1 mile to a junction turning left then right on Serpentine Prairie Trail up to the Trudeau Center Staging Area for our snack stop.

The longer hike continues down West Ridge Trail for another 0.7 mile to a right onto Golden Spike Trail, following it West along Redwood Road to the Tate Trail junction. Crossing Tate Trail we join back up with the shorter hike to continue on Golden Spike Trail as above.

After our break we pass the Trudeau Center on the connector Trail to Dunn Trail. We follow Dunn for less than 0.1 mile to a left to connect with the Trail to Joaquin Miller Park. Ascending for 0.2 mile to Skyline Blvd, turning left for 0.1 mile along the road, we turn right, crossing Skyline to enter Joaquin Miller Park. We now follow Sequoia Bayview Trail for about 1.75 mile below the Sequoia Horse Area, past Cinderella Trail, to a right turn on Castle Park Trail crossing over Skyline into the Redwood Bowl Staging Area to our cars.
