Round Valley Regional Preserve Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful hiking location. Highly recommend it! Makes me think of how amazing the rest of the bay area looked before it was settled.
It's our go to place to take a 5 mile hike up and around hills that are mostly covered with trees! I would say it's a 5 out of 5 for fitness levels, 5 being hard. I see all ages go up. But it mainly kicks my butt and tests my agility.
Very nice park for hiking, biking and horse riding. Easy climbs and well maintained trails. I saw 4 horses when I was here today, with a moderate amount of poop to watch out for, but they were very nice, and also saw several hikers during the day. Area is exposed to sun in many areas around the valley, with sparce scattered trees, so bring sunscreen and lots of water and be prepared, as it's 2 miles back to the parking area. There area numerous singletrack trails that parallel the fire trail for bikes and several other singletracks for hiking only around the main hill in the park. Several areas for horse water and picnic tables scatter throughout the park. 7+ mile fire trail loop from parking area around the valley with access to Fox Trail trail as side spur up to park boundary, plus other fire trails like Miwok trail into Los Vaqueros and Morgan Territory parks. There is even a camping area at far end of park, a few pics attached of it, there is a pit toilet bathroom, non potable water spigots and 8+ picnic tables, horse tie up area but no campfires.
Sunny spots, shady spots, challenging trail. Cows were on the trail a couple times, so that was kind of funny. We just kept walking and they got out of the way. Pretty flowers, really can't catch the beauty on a camera. Toilets are at the entrance. A place by the creek near the entrance that would be good for a picnic. Tons of tadpoles in the pools, but that's probably only there during spring. Signage was helpful. Maps are at the entrance to the park to help with navigation. There are mountain lions, and we saw a 90% eaten deer, so bring an emergency whistle to scare any animals (just in case).
Long and up, down hills. I loved it. My only thing is not pet friendly....
