“Explore two East Bay Regional Parks in 6.5 miles.”— Wendy Wheeler
Expect to cross several pedestrian bridges along the run. A short run on the road will get you to Five Canyons. The views of the Bay Area at the top of the ridge are unique. You can see the bay and backyards of beautiful homes. The streams and lake area made this run very pleasant.
It is a great spot to enjoy a swim and picnic after a run. This run is best in the morning before it gets hot.
The downside to this area is the highway noise!
