About the Park:  Del Valle Regional Park provides for numerous outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, picnicking, and swimming.  The southeastern end of the park is where most of these activities are clustered.  Most of the trails at Del Valle (especially when speaking of bike-legal trails) are also clustered in the southeastern half of the park.  While there is a selection of fire roads meandering atop the hills directly north of the main parking lots, virtually all the trails that are likely to interest bikers, including all the singletrack trails are situated on a strip of lake shore leading northwest along East Shore Trail.
