Encompassing nearly 5000 acres, the park is home to many other recreational activities, such as camping, picnicking, horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking. This ride follows a route completely around the park along mostly rural roads, with the exception of the section in San Leandro. Starting at the entrance to the Lake Chabot Marina, the route leads along the hills overlooking the lake and then down into San Leandro. After a short stretch along busy city streets, a long sustained climb along Golf Links Drive, Grass Valley Road and Skyline Boulevard takes you to the high point, 1160 feet above sea level, and to some spectacular views of the East Bay cities below.

Hottest day of the year and from Seattle, so took a bit of its toll, but a nice hike, especially in the trees off the West side of the lake. Rather busy park and close to the marina gets really busy but otherwise pretty quiet out in the further outer areas.
