Briones Hike East Bay

Briones East Bay Hike

April 12, 2011

Hidden, in plain sight, is one of the East Bays most enriching hikes. Briones Regional Park offers long, ambling walks through grassy rolling hills, spotted with oak trees. There are lovely views of distant towns, landmarks, and neighboring parkland. This walk also has pleasant surprises of lagoons and contrasting dense damp woodland. Hawks, eagles, and turkey vultures soar and circle above the canyons. Black-tailed deer love to munch on brush in the deeper canyons. There are several small creeks lined with ferns and shrubs, and patches of sun-loving wildflowers grow along most of the trails. The landscape changes seasonally from summer gold to wintergreen, and gives you a taste of California's Spanish ranch past. If you want to be surrounded by ground squirrels, red-trail hawks, coyotes, coast-range-fence lizards, California poppies, lupines, and Californian natural beauty this is the hike for you.
