I used to go here often for cross country track meets, but it had been a while since I had been there and I forgot how good the views were from the high hills.

Garin Park is a great "hole in the wall". If you want to get out into the outdoors for the day, this is a great place. There are tables for picnicing, a grass area for playing on and good hiking. While hiking, some locations look...More

Big park, well-used and loved, big green space, needed in the very crowded Bay Area. Good for hiking.

Recently went mountain biking in Garin and I have got to say this is a fun place to ride. You can only use the fire roads but they go all over the hills. Lots of great vistas of the Bay Area.

Good spot for Picnicking and fishing. Mild to warm weather, but you can find something agreeable. Most families love it because it is near one or two bait shops and lots of fast foods and grocery stores. Horses are also nearby.
