Redwood Regional Park – another hiking trail explored
A beautiful forest right in the city of Oakland, and I can finally proudly say ‘been there, done that.’ Redwood Regional Park is a hidden gem waiting to be explored by hikers, nature lovers and picnic-goers. In the 1800s, the area where the park now stands used to be a logging site, supplying the heavy construction demand in the San Francisco Bay Area.
For first-timers like us, we started with an easy trail called Stream Trail – a one-mile stretch of semi-paved trail, with signs to guide you all throughout. The hot summer day did not stop us from enjoying our hike; the tall redwood trees were shielding us from the heat of the sun.
