I have been riding this park of over 13 years and it has now become a battle ground for echo freaks! That is another story..
See this link for more info.
Here are some tips:
There is a little known trailhead in Golden Eagle. This trail starts in the Augustan Bernal Park. This section is covered in large Oak trees and is nice smooth fire road without all the pesky flies and no cattle. Unless you are a resident of Pleasanton, automobile access is restricted in Golden Eagle. However, bicycle access is allowed. I usually start at Longview Road and ride up.
There is also a couple (Sinbad Creek and North Ridge Trail) legal singletrack trails on the ridge. These sections are located in the back country and quite beautiful. Just watch out for poison oak.
Out of the respect for EBRPD, there are a few harrowing illegal single tracks that I no longer ride on. I personally donít want to give the militant hikers any reason to close this park.
Mt. Diablo, Lake Chabot, and Morgan Territory
