This tour starts near Redwood Road and Joaquin Miller Road between Oakland and Contra Costa County. The scenic pathway is in Joaquin Miller Park and adjacent to Redwood Regional Park. Riding on this pathway in the Redwood and Monterey Pine forest provides great views and gives customers the opportunity to ride the wide tired X-2s on dirt and paved pathways with sweeping views of Oakland, San Francisco, and the Bay.
This park is up in the Hills. At the top of the Berkeley/Oakland Hills there is an extensive Park system including Tilden Park, Redwood Park, Joaquin Miller Park and Anthony Chabot Park. All of these Parks are adjacent to Oakland and Berkeley, and on the Oakland side of the Park boundary there are trails that run along the top of the ridge near Skyline, next to the local Bay Area Redwood Forests.
These trails provide scenic off-road riding options and provide a great diversion from city Segway riding. For views of the San Francisco Bay, Redwoods, and trails all in one ride, a ride through the Redwoods is the way to go. We include training that takes place outside on a grass field and park pathway.
This ride is appropriate for beginners, but is somewhat more involved than our Lake Merritt ride because of this ride is partly on a dirt trail and rougher roads. The paved and dirt sections of the trail are all fire roads that are surrounded by a redwood grove adjacent to Redwood Regional Park.
Many people are surprised that Redwood Regional Park buttresses right up against Oakland’s border. The trail and roadways on this ride also provide spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay. The elevation is around a thousand feet, so really the views are sweeping views of the Bay and San Francisco, truly unlike other locations around the Bay Area. 2.5 to 3 hours.
