San Jose, California
Redwood Regional Park
Redwood Regional Park in Oakland is truly a gem. These coastal redwoods grow more than 100 feet tall. The trees from the original forest served as landmarks for sea captains sailing into San Francisco Bay. The naming of the Rainbow Trout species was based on fish taken from San Leandro creek, which runs through the park. This will be a nice summer hike through the redwoods.
