3 out of 5
This is the best singletrack in the East Bay. Ride through dense redwood groves in Oakland’s Joaquin Miller Park. Although the park is less than a square mile, there are enough trails to wind around for several miles and a couple of hours. There are too many short trails and options to spell out mileage directions for a specific route. Bring the map, and have fun exploring. Trails range from easy, smooth fire trails to technical singletracks with roots, rocks, and drops. Connect these trails with loops in Redwood Regional Park or Lake Chabot for a longer ride. Trail surface: Dirt singletrack and dirt roads.

Beautiful ride through often steep terrain. Print the guide and pay attention. Trails are not marked. Can you get lost in a city park--yes!
