  • Binoculars


Although, the fastest way to get there is by going though I-680 and I-580, the alternate route shown on the map in a lighter blue color (Crow Canyon Road to Redwood Road) is shorter and way more scenic.

Note that here are several entrances to Redwood Regional Park. The main entrance, Redwood Gate, is on Redwood Road in Oakland about two miles east of Skyline Blvd. In Oakland on Highway 13, take the Redwood Road exit and go east (uphill). At the top of the hill you will cross Skyline Boulevard and pass the Skyline Ranch Equestrian Center on the right. Farther along you will pass Piedmont Stables on the left. Big Bear Staging Area will be on the right about one and one-half miles from Skyline Boulevard, followed by MacDonald Staging Area on the right and Redwood Gate on the left (seasonal parking fee). Continue to the Bear Creek Staging Area and park there.
