“This is a 290 acre open space preserve - a wooded canyon with creek, and trails that climb to views. This trail is popular with walkers and dog walkers. Sometimes you will meet a professional dog walker with a group of dogs. The parking lot to this small network of trails is inside a condo complex on Campus Drive just yards from Keller and Campus Drive, (Keller is an exit off 580) in East Oakland. The lovely creekside trail climbs steadily 2 miles to Merritt Campus (where dogs need to be on leash). There is one trail branching off to the right, where you are rewarded with splendid vistas looking towards Hayward (it joins with Skyline). The other trail branches to the left through a beautiful oak forest, and ends on Campus Drive. Dogs need to be on leash in parking lot area. Dogs will drink from creek so make sure they are vaccinated. ”

Leona Canyon Open Space Preserve - dogs run free

This is a hidden gem. I lived in the area for a while before I found out about it! Good for a workout for humans and dogs, but the main trail is a gentle climb. Relatively cool and shady for hot summer days, rushing creek during the wet season, pretty wildflowers like poppies in spring. The only negative thing is that when the squirrels are active, I have a hard time keeping my dog from chasing them (she is obsessed).
