This mountain bike ride covers 20 miles of trails and completely traverses Anthony Chabot Regional Park, located near San Leandro. The route begins at one of the rear accesses into the park, the MacDonald Staging Area along Redwood Road, and immediately climbs on a steep grade along MacDonald Trail. Expansive views at the crest are brief, as the trail drops sharply into the valley below. Passing through Grass Valley along the Brandon Trail, you will often encounter grazing cattle at close range. After a short climb at the end of the Grass Valley, the trail then descends and follows a paved path leading around Lake Chabot. There is usually more activity around this part of the park, since the lake offers more activities and attracts families with children on weekends.
