BicycleTrails in Castro Valley
Lake Chabot Reservoir is a 315 acre lake that was built in 1874 as a primary source of water for the East Bay. Services include boat rentals, the Marina Cafe, picnicking, grassy play area, horseshoe pits, hiking, bicycling, jogging, and running trails, and seasonal lake boat tours. There is a part paved, part dirt 12 mile trail around Lake Chabot for bicycles. There are also fire roads open to mountain bikes unless otherwise posted. In winter, dirt trails are muddy so be careful. Lake Chabot trails connect to even more trails in Anthony Chabot Regional Park.
