Highlander Hike – Reinhardt Redwood Regional Park
November 21, 2020
Hit the trails with your family, social bubble, or extracurricular unit for our November Highlander Hike! You can complete this hike any day/time that works for your family. Send us two pictures from the hike to get credit for the highlander.
Enter the park via Redwood Rd, and park at the Wayside Parking Lot. Note the Canyon Meadow parking lot farther down the road is currently closed. Many trails can be taken from this spot. One 2-mile loop is noted on the map below, and additional longer loops can be done as well.
Check the EBPARKS Website to ensure the park is still open and to access a park and trail map. Also ensure you follow physical distance and face covering requirements. We hope you can enjoy a safe hike outdoors!
Park Features: In addition to a great forest of coast redwoods, the park’s 1833 acres also contain other evergreens, chaparral, and grasslands. Wildlife within the park includes rare species such as the golden eagle and Alameda striped racer. Deer, raccoons, rabbits, and squirrels are often seen. The naming of the rainbow trout species was based on fish taken from the San Leandro Creek drainage, which includes Redwood Creek. Trout seen in the creek today are descendants of that pure strain. Historical Landmark #970 is located at the fishway interpretive site a short distance inside the park’s Redwood Gate park entrance off Redwood Road. The fish-way was constructed at the creek in this area to help the trout reach their upstream spawning grounds. Please note that fishing is not allowed in the park.
