From: Chabot Staging Area

To: Cull Canyon Regional Recreation Area in Castro Valley

A long ramble through rolling grasslands and wooded canyons arrives at a popular swimming, fishing, and picnicking site. This route begins with a steady 2-mile, 920-foot ascent to Dinosaur Ridge and its 360-degree views, then follows wide service roads along a rolling ridgetop, passes through cattle-grazed lands with little shade, and then descends on a narrow canyon trail to Cull Creek. More than half of the route is open grassland with some oak woodland, and can be hot in summer.

Elevation Gain/Loss 1,050 feet/1,170 feet
