Every city should have a great network of trails. In the East Bay, the Contra Costa Canal Trail links with various other trails. It results in hiking and biking paths that take you for miles through various towns and areas. The bikes probably travel too fast and should use bells more often as once you get into a hiking zone,... More

I always enjoy the Contra Costa Canal Trail. I ride my bike along it many times a month. What is nice is that it is paved and well maintained and isolated from traffic, except for street crossings which are not very often.

What a great place to walk. It seems really safe as many other people are sharing the trail with you. Biking can take you all around the valley, from flat to fairly steep trails. The view is beautiful at the top of the trail. Definitely recommend.

This is an asphalt walk behind people's back yards along an irrigation ditch. It's fine if you want to bicycle somewhere. But I wouldn't waste the time considering it a tourist attraction.

I walked with my dog everyday. it's beautiful , safe and clean. I walk on the pavement but I have also taken the dirt road in the hills. it's serene and the breeze feels delicious as it brushes you on the face on very hot days. you can see falcons, rabbits, birds and appreciate the views of the city and...

I walked with my wife, my son's sometimes, but mostly with my wife and our dog. what I like it's that we can combine with either riding our bikes, walking the hills or my kids jogging as well. it's relaxing and the people we encountered there are friendly. the walks are safe and the place clean

It meanders thru various cities of the East Bay, and is easily accessible from various entry points. I have found it to be a fun way to get exercise, and I am... More

Doesn't matter if you are with/out kids, dog, solo this is a great place to walk/run/jog/cycle. Not the prettiest trail I have been on but has some lovely views of Mt Diablo and joins up with the Iron Horse Trail and I think several others. The connection with the Iron Horse Trail is important as that can take you to... More
