What you need: A car, friends, BBQ essentials and a Frisbee (or something to throw). Take highway 13 to the Redwood Rd. exit. Take Redwood deep into Anthony Chabot Park, 4,972 acres of recreational utopia. Stay on Redwood Rd. for about 8 miles until you hit the Bort Meadow staging area. Park and follow the signs. Bort Meadow has two giant BBQ grills, tables, spigots, and facilities. From the meadow you have access to miles of great biking and hiking trails. Most popular for Lake Chabot and the family campground, this park is mostly devoid of humans, just watch out for the cows.
