Room to Roam
Currently, the City of Dublin is working in conjunction with the East Bay Regional Park District
to explore the possibility of developing a regional open space park in the western hills of Dublin. Currently, however, the City features two open land developments:
Being Aware of Others
- Dougherty Hills Open Space: Amador Valley Boulevard and Stagecoach Road (107.5 acres)
- The largest of the City's open space areas, Dougherty Hills offers sweeping views of Mount Diablo and Tri-Valley. The trailhead is located north of Amador Valley Boulevard and east of Stagecoach Road. The trail follows the top of the ridge north to the Dublin city limit. Dogs must remain leashed at all times.
- Martin Canyon Creek Trail: Silvergate Drive and Bay Laurel Drive (18.5 acres)
- The Martin Canyon Creek Trail is one of Dublin's little known treasures. This improved trail follows Martin Canyon Creek for 0.89 miles and offers amazing views of the Tri-Valley and the canyons leading to the west. Large oaks and bay trees line the creek and trail and provide tranquil areas for respite. The trailhead is located at the corner of Silvergate and Bay Laurel drives.
The City allows recreational use of open space areas consistent with resource protection and preservation. Many people come out to the trails seeking a chance to get away from the urban environment, but - in order to help make multiple-use trails work - each user must be aware of the needs of others.
For this reason, all visitors are asked to comply with our trail regulations
that have proven effective in providing resource protection and a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.
If you have additional questions about area trails and/or open spaces, please contact the Parks and Community Services Department at (925) 556-4500.
