Dr. Aurelia Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park is a hidden gem of redwood forest off Redwood Road, just a few miles over the ridge from downtown Oakland. The forest's peaceful groves give little evidence of the park's bustling past. In the mid-1800s the area was the scene of extensive logging to supply building materials for the San Francisco Bay Area. The logging era has long since passed, and a stately forest of 150-foot coast redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) have replaced those cut down. Please visit the Reinhardt Redwood Park Page or call the EBRPD Reservations Department at 1-888-EBPARKS (1-888-327-2757) option 2 for more information.
Natural Features
In addition to a great forest of coast redwoods, the park also contains other evergreens, chaparral, and grassland. Wildlife within the park includes rare species such as the golden eagle and Alameda striped racer. Deer, racoons, rabbits and squirrels are often seen.
Hiking, jogging, and horseback riding are popular on the park's nearly 40 miles of trails. The East Bay Skyline National Trail and Bay Area Ridge Trail traverse Redwood for part of its 31-mile course.
