Sunol Regional Wilderness

by on July 08, 2012

Spring Wildflowers, a massive basalt outcrop, a scenic gorge on Alameda Creek and plenty of trails through varied terrain await visitors at Sunol Regional Wilderness.

Bedrock mortars used by Native Americans for pounding acorns that were found in the area are reminders of Sunol’s first inhabitants. For the past century, however, the land known today as Sunol Regional Wilderness was used almost exclusively as ranch land. Today, camping, picnicking, hiking, backpacking and equestrian trail rides attract thousands of park visitors a year.
