Description:  The Stream Trail is a partially paved trail that winds through meadows with picnic areas before entering a magnificent forest with towering redwoods, arching bay trees, and lush ferns. Here the trail is packed dirt, but still wide and with little elevation gain, following Redwood Creek. There are several steeper and more challenging trails branching off from the Stream Trail which provide our moderate challenges.  Those not so inclined can stay on the Stream Trail and return by the same route.  Restrooms are available along the Stream trail. 

Where to meet: We will meet in Redwood Regional Park at the “Redwood Gate,” 7867 Redwood Rd, Oakland, CA. This "GATE" is located off the north side of Redwood Road about 2.25 miles east of Skyline Blvd. Turn Left into the park here, and follow the entry road past the kiosk to the FIRST parking area on the left, the parking space for the Fish Ladder. We will meet there this time. This is a popular park on weekends, so please allow extra time (10 minutes?) to walk from your parking space to the meeting place.

What to bring: Binoculars if you have them, good hiking shoes or boots for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, snacks. Hiking poles are optional, but a good idea for the longer option. 

Directions: Take Hwy 13 south to the Redwood Road Exit. Turn left off the exit, and follow Redwood Road east, 2.25 miles past Skyline drive. Turn left into the “Redwood Gate.” The first parking pull-off on the left side is the lot for the Fish Ladder. We will meet there.
 

Carpools: If you need a ride or can give a ride, please email Audre (audrenew@gmail.com) a few days in advance for arranging a pickup near your home or at a BART station. PUBLIC TRANSIT: see AC TRANSIT by calling 511, or on the internet at 511.org.
