60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks: Week Nine
Redwood Regional Park

Prince Road, Redwood Regional Park

What it's like:
An under four mile tour through a beautiful East Bay redwood canyon.

Why now:
Enjoy the last lingering leaves on big leaf maples and pleasant weather.

If you can't make it this week:
Trails are very wet in winter, but it's worth slogging through the mud to get glimpses of wintering ladybird beetle (ladybugs) colonies. They typically huddle together in massive, colorful groups in February along Stream Trail near the junction with Prince Road.

Insider tip:
This is great hike to share with your dog!

Redwood Regional Park is hike number 32 in 60 Hikes in 60 Miles: San Francisco (third edition)Read about this hike on BAHiker.

Alternate choice:
Bothe-Napa Valley State Park. This charming wine country park now has yurts in addition to a fine campground. Visualize a weekend here: stroll on lovely trails through redwoods, sleep in a cozy yurt, sip a little wine....
