Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve is a small regional park mainly located in the city of Oakland, California, and administered by the East Bay Regional Park District. The park is named for the canyon in which it is situated, Claremont Canyon, out of which Claremont Creek flows on its way to its confluence with Temescal Creek. Originally, the canyon was named Harwood's Canyon, and then later as Telegraph Canyon. The name was changed to Claremont by a developer of the nearby Claremont district.

  • We drove through this area as we descended from the hills and noticed the lovely preserved green space that adds so much to the densely-populated East Bay.

  • One can hike way up into the hills in this Preserve and experience great views of the Bay the Golden Gate and San Francisco. Beware great heat on a sunny day.

  • I love watching the sunset from here, it's amazing. During the day it's excellent to hike for the views alone. I highly recommend visiting at least once and taking a good camera. Lots of incredible views and trails. The trails have numerous steep parts, so bring water and good trail shoes.
  • Very beautiful hike. Is amazing what all is just above campus of UC Berkeley. Good for dogs too but is a fairly popular hike due to close proximity - so a good sprinkling of people around. Great views also.
