East Bay Trails


2nd Edition

Hiking Trails in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties

Explore 56 trails in the superb open spaces of San Francisco’s East Bay

The East Bay of San Francisco, California, offers a diverse array of hiking opportunities: the scenic shoreline of Point Pinole, the furrowed foothills and windy summit of Mount Diablo, trails that are home to the flourishing bird and plant life on Pleasanton Ridge and at Livermore’s Lake Del Valle. East Bay Trails is the ideal guide to the best trips in and around the area’s ridges, shores, wilderness areas, lakes, and reservoirs.

Written by acclaimed author David Weintraub, this is the most complete and up-to-date trail guide for Alameda and Contra Costa counties. East Bay Trails presents 56 hikes, complete with detailed route descriptions and at-a-glance information about length, time, difficulty, regulations, and facilities. The text focuses mostly on hiking, but other outdoors enthusiasts—fitness walkers, joggers, equestrians, and bicyclists—can also make good use of this guide.

Inside you’ll find

  • 56 hiking trips, ranging from mile-long strolls to all-day treks, plus a few long hikes with overnight options
  • New trips in Lime Ridge Open Space, Diablo Foothills Regional Park, and Round Valley Regional Preserve
  • Detailed descriptions of each trip, plus updated maps
  • Appendix of the best hikes for any mood or desire, whether it’s birdwatching, scenic vistas, waterfalls, or an easy trip for kids
