Exploring Point Reyes National Seashore and Golden Gate National Recreation Area

Oakwood Valley is host to vigorous cascades in winter and the fragrant shade of eucalyptus and bay laurel in summer. Poor Rover. So many of the trails in Bay Area parks are off limits to dogs that he’s likely to find himself left home or confined to the car while the master and mistress check out the wonders of the parks. But not in Oakwood Valley. Here, Sparky finds freedom; here, Fluffy can run off her leash, provided she stays on the trail and responds well to voice commands. What’s good for Spot, of course, is also good for Spot’s owner. The trail is interesting and varied, looping up through mixed woodlands to a pond and a cascade that flows vigorously in the rainy season and trickles away to nothing by late summer. It’s described here as a loop beginning on the singletrack Oakwood Valley Trail and finishing on the broad Fire Road Trail, but it can be done in the other direction as well.
