East Bay: Canine Caper
Bring your four-legged friends (two-legged friends also welcome) for a nature hike in the Oakland Hills.
Ten million years ago, a geologic convergence called the “triple plate junction” produced the volcanic features seen in the park today. But what strange convergence of forces produced the park’s stone labyrinths? Canine detectives are on the case!

We’ll assemble at the main park entrance off Skyline Boulevard in Oakland.
Bring snacks, water, hiking poles (if you normally use them), and leash (if bringing a dog); wear layers and good hiking shoes. East Bay Regional Park District rules allow dogs off leash in much of the park, provided they are in sight and under voice command. However, dogs must be leashed within 200 feet of developed areas.
