Rockville Hills Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Rockville Hills’ 633 acres of blue oak woodland, chaparral, and grassland sit atop a thin layer of topsoil covering volcanic rock that’s exposed in outcrops and caves throughout the park. In the spring, the grasslands support a diversity of wildflowers; the oak woodlands are beautiful and welcoming any time of year. The park’s hills offer long views from Mount Diablo to the Bay, and its geology offers fascinating rock formations. Hikers, picnickers, mountain bikers, and dogs are all welcome here.
