Hiking in Dublin, California


The City of Dublin takes great pride in its many wonderful parks and sports facilities. Dublin currently features over 20 neighborhood and community parks, sports fields, and open space areas for hiking or biking. As new neighborhoods begin to flourish, additional parks will be built to meet the needs of local residents. Their community parks include amenities such as:

  • Bocce ball courts

  • Children's play equipment

  • Open space for informal play or sports activities

  • Picnic areas

  • Sports fields and courts

  • Trails


The City requires the recreation of open space areas together with the security and conservation of resources. A lot of people come out on the trails looking for a chance to get away from the urban world, but to really make multi-purpose trails work, each user needs to be mindful of the needs of others.


For this reason, all tourists are asked to comply with their rules on trails, which have proven to be successful in providing security for resources and a healthy and enjoyable experience for all.


The City of Dublin currently has two open terrains, and the East Bay Regional Park District has been opened and maintained:


Dougherty Hills Open Space: Amador Valley Boulevard and Stagecoach Road (107.5 acres)

Dougherty Hills provides sweeping views of Mount Diablo and Tri-Valley, which are the largest open-air areas in the region. The trail is situated to the east of Stagecoach lane, to the north of Amador Valley Boulevard. The path proceeds up the  ridge to the city boundary of Dublin. Dogs should still be leashed.


Martin Canyon Creek Trail: Silvergate Drive and Bay Laurel Drive (18.5 acres)

The Martin Canyon Creek Trail is one of Dublin's lesser-known gems. This enhanced trail parallels Martin Canyon Creek for 0.89 miles and provides spectacular views of the Tri-Valley and the canyons to the west. Large oaks and bay trees line the creek and the trail and offer a peaceful spot to relax. It's located at the corner of Silvergate and Bay Laurel.


Dublin Hills Regional Park: Dublin Boulevard and Marshall Canyon Drive (654 acres)

This open space area, part of the East Bay Regional Park District, provides some of the best views of the Tri-Valley, including the San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge. Park trails, like the Calaveras Ridge Regional Trail, are great for hikers, bikers and horseback riders. The Calaveras Ridge Trail starts near the Schaefer Ranch in Dublin and will soon take you to grassland areas largely untouched since the 1800s.
