A hidden gem in the Sunol Valley is the Sunol Regional Park, part of the East Bay Parks system.  A few miles east on Calaveras Road off I-680, this park has quite a variety.  Fireroads, narrow single tracks, a resevoir, streams, falls, rock climable peaks, cows and wildlife, it makes for a great quick get-away to the outdoors.  This kid friendly park has hikes that range from easy to strenous.  Trails like Little Yosemite and McCorkie afford decent views with moderate effort.  For the more adventurous, a trek into the Sunol Wilderness(and camping), a trek on the Ohlone trail (which requires a pass) or rock climbing on the basalt outcrop (Indian Joe Cave Rocks) are options.  Overall, this park, has something for everyone.  More information is available at the park’s website:
