Redwood Regional Park - East Ridge and Stream Trails, Oakland, California

East Ridge Trail (direct sunlight) to Canyon Trail and return on Stream Trail (shaded by canopy) - 7.6m
  • Offers amazing opportunity to see clusters of ladybugs (see East Bay Times story)
    • The most predictable location to see ladybugs in great numbers is around the junction of the Prince and Stream trails.  The Stream Trail clusters are between Prince Road and Tres Sendes, and another dramatic gathering is midway on the French Trail between Tres Sendes and West Ridge Trail.
  • Overshot Canyon Trail cutover which added about ¾ mile to mapped route
