Red Willow Park is a sweet little park at the end of a cul de sac that could be easily missed! There are a few parking spots and the park is fully loaded with a playground, picnic benches, and bathrooms. The SR hiking challenge has it as a 2.24-mile hike starting at red willow park and then descending with a hidden crest loop. Apparently, the hidden crest loop was really hidden and it’s a challenge to find it. There were different trails in different directions, but without clear markings and the higher grass-like trees, it didn't feel like a good idea.
You can find the short trail and back right after passing the bathrooms. You start with a steep incline at first, but nothing too major. Once you get to the highest part of the incline, remember to turn around and take in that beautiful view! Along the way you'll see flowers and wildlife such as unique birds. Spring is the perfect time since everything is so green and in full bloom. A word of caution, stay in the middle of the path since getting too close to the outside with high trees, you may find some other wildlife! You will be able to find tiny garden snakes, but they were harmless and merely trying to get away into the bushes. Regardless, stay on the path! Definitely, a park that should be explored if you're ever in the area.
It is a great and peaceful little park in a safe and quiet area that is perfect for kids to go to. There is a big baseball field to go to and a playground for 3-8 years olds. Also, the view of Mount Dio Lo is awesome.
It has a perfect scenery. You’ll also be impressed with the greenery, how clean everything is, the beauty of that landscape, a true gem in San Ramon. Very accessible parking lot with restrooms (clean!) and easy and pretty hike for all comfort levels.
This amazing landmark is just one of the many throughout San Ramon, California:
All of these wonderful destinations are located just a short distance from our location on Blackhawk Plaza Circle, Robert Arnone CPA.
