With a route that follows about 14 miles of trails, this ride covers most of Anthony Chabot Regional Park, located near San Leandro. Beginning at the marina on the lake, the route initially follows along the shoreline. After crossing a narrow bridge where you need to walk your bike, a dirt trail begins. A steep climb leads away from the lake and heads into the more remote sections of the park. The route then follows through some camping areas along the crest of the hills and descends back down into Grass Valley and onto Grass Valley Trail, the main trail leading through the center of the park. Passing through Grass Valley along the Brandon Trail, you will often find grazing cattle. A short climb at the end of Grass Valley is followed by a descent to a paved path leading back to Lake Chabot. There is usually plenty of activity at this end of the park, since the lake and its diversions attract families with children. While there are lots of hills to climb, the trails are generally wide and smooth. Livestock may be present but they are usually quite passive and offer no threat.
