Hiking is the most popular activity in the park. The main starting points are from the park's entrance, trailhead parking area and from the mountain's summit. Various neighborhood access points including Crocker Road and Carter Street also provide good starting points. Views afforded from many spots on the trails are unparalleled in the bay area.
Sightseeing is also popular. Radio Road, leading up from the main entrance, offers visitors the opportunity to drive to the summit of the Mountain and enjoy breathtaking views north to Mt. Tamalpais, east of Mt. Diablo and west to the Farallon Islands.
The park offers family picnic sites near the park entrance that include tables, barbecue pits, drinking water and a restroom. The nearby grass area is a popular spot for recreational activities such as volleyball, frisbees and kite-flying.
