  • Chabot park is an absolute beauty! If you prefer long hikes/bike rides then this place is perfect for you! But if you also just prefer a 10 minute hike to the peak, then this is also a place for you. The trails are well marked, restrooms are abundant, and benches are anywhere you feel the need to sit down! A beautiful view finishes it off to make it an amazing park experience that will be hard to forget!
  • Peaceful and serene. Trees everywhere and a beautiful view of lake chabot. Can get a little windy. Staff has firewood for $8 a bundle and they sell charcoal, not sure how much it costs. No other amenities sold here and closest store is about 20 minutes away, so come prepared. turkeys like to visit in the morning, but they keep to themselves. Skunks like to visit at night, so put your food away!!! Stayed from Sunday until Saturday morning...not too many people, as school is in session. Wonderful hiking and biking trails.
