Del Valle Regional Park hosts some of the East Bay's most spectacular hiking.
The Ohlone Wilderness Trail is not to be missed by hikers ready for one of the most strenuous climbs in the Bay Area. For backpackers, this trail continues along the ridge tops and valleys to Sunol Regional Park, however it makes for a great full-day hike if you leave in the morning and turn back once you reach Schlieper Rock. It departs just above the picnic area beside the West Beach. Incredible views.
The East Shore Trail, when taken from the Arroyo Rd. staging area, provides a shorter climb than the Ohlone trail but with stunning views of the reservoir and the Livermore Valley nevertheless. The trail can also be picked up from the parking lot of the Del Valle Marina for a much easier hike mostly at grade alongside the lake.
Boating, fishing, and camping are also possible at Del Valle. Camping needs to be booked well in advance.
