Harvard Club of Silicon Valley and San Francisco Presents
Walk off those extra holiday calories!
Lake Chabot Reservoir was built in 1874-75 as a primary source of water for the East Bay.
The 315-acre lake was closed to recreation for 91 years. Legislation passed in the 1960s opened the lake for controlled recreational uses. Currently, the lake serves as a standby emergency water supply.
Most the 9 mile hike is flat, but there are a few hills and the cumulative elevation gain will be about 500 ft.
Meet in front of the cafe by the marina.
Parking in the lot is $5, or you can park nearby for free on Lake Chabot Road.
Important: Bring enough water, snacks, and sunblock to last you through an 9 mile/3.5 hour hike
