Bay Area Hikes with Swings
1 Jan 2012
Some hiking routes have swings along the way. These swings are tires suspended from tree branches with good solid rope.
Joaquin Miller

Joaquin Miller is a surprisingly placid redwood park in Oakland.

9.3 miles
1500 ft
Joaquin Miller and Dimond Canyon Loop
A long hike that covers all major trails in Joaquin Miller Park and Dimond Canyon Park. The best section is along the Palos Colorados Trail which meanders next to a cool redwood canyon. The swing is located along Fern Ravine Trail when it crosses a creek shown on the trail map. Our group had a great time on the swing during our last trip. Shorter loops that include the swing may be formed in Joaquin Miller Park.

Portola Valley
6.9 miles
1100 ft
Portola Valley Loop
A mostly shaded loop that goes through myriad trails criss-crossing Portola Valley. The swing is somewhere along Toyon Trail.
