Activities in the Sunol Wilderness include hiking, horseback riding, walking, backpack camping, and picnicking. Indian Joe Cave Rocks provides sport and challenge to rock climbers. Naturalists lead walks, hikes, trail rides, camping trips, and backpacking adventures, and other outings. Visit the Old Green Barn Visitor Center for information about these programs and the self-guided Indian Joe Nature Trail. The Ohlone Wilderness Trail is a popular hiking destination; permits are available by phone, internet or at the Sunol Visitor Center (call ahead or check website for open hours).
Visitors should bring drinking water, because there is none available in the park.
The Sunol Wilderness is near many Northern California attractions. The cities of Oakland and Berkeley are about one hour away, and a longer drive takes visitors to either San Francisco or the Peninsula.
