Crockett Hills Regional Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Spectacular views, soaring hawks, the possibility of a golden eagle sighting, and miles of trails are the highlights of this little known park.
This 1,939-acre park is located outside the town of Crockett and connects to the Carquinez Regional Shoreline. It provides trails for hiking, and mountain bike and horse-back riding. Dogs are allowed off-leash while under voice control. A 4.5-mile segment of the Bay Area Ridge Trail traverses the park. The ridge provides views of San Pablo Bay, the Delta, Mount Tamalpais, and Mount Diablo.Park habitats include grasslands, wooded ravines, eucalyptus-shaded meadows, and river shoreline.
