"This backpacking trip, the only one of its kind in the East Bay Regional Park system, puts you in the heart of the Ohlone Wilderness, a rugged, remote, and beautiful area. Along the way, you will also pass through Sunol Regional Wilderness and Del Valle Regional Park, and spend two nights (or more if you like) camped in oak woodland, surrounded by wildflowers and birds, perhaps listening to the howl of a coyote or the hoot of an owl."
