"This park, adjacent to Redwood Regional Park, offers many of its neighbor’s attractions in a more intimate and less crowded setting. Using the Sunset, Cinderella, and Sequoia–Bayview trails, this loop explores forests of redwood, Monterey cypress, eucalyptus, and acacia, and offers a fine view of Oakland and San Francisco. The park is named for Joaquin Miller (1841–1913), a colorful figure best known as a poet and an arborist. He settled in the hills above Oakland, where he planted thousands of trees and built monuments to his heroes—Moses, explorer John C. Frémont, and poets Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. From the front of the ranger station, leave the parking area and walk south along Sanborn Dr., in a corridor of California bay, coast live oak, madrone, and pine, toward the park entrance. After about 0.1 mile, just before you reach Joaquin Miller Road, you come to a yellow gate, left. Past the gate, go straight on a dirt-andgravel road toward the Upper Meadow and Greenwood picnic areas."
