HIKE: Briones Crest Trail Loop

Location: Lafayette Distance: Eight miles Trailhead: Bear Creek Staging Area, Briones Regional Park

Briones is the hidden gem you've been ignoring in your own backyard. The eight-mile Briones Crest Path offers breathtaking vistas and great exercise. From Bear Creek Staging Area, take Briones Crest Trail up and around the park (enjoying the stunning views along the way), then head back down till you reach Seaborg Trail soon after mile six. You will return to your starting point if you follow Seaborg Trail. If you're simply looking for a quick hike, Briones has accessible hiking paths with a number of options for shorter circuits. If you only come here once a year, come in the spring when the wildflowers are in bloom. Get more info: >>
