Unless there are restrictions due to golden eagle nesting, or fires (look at the bars above), more than 53 miles of trails are open to hikers. Take a look at our Los Vaqueros Trail Guides for suggestions on scenic hikes ranging from 2 to 8.6 miles in the watershed.
The John Muir Interpretive Center is open every Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are a number of exhibits at the center, and there are frequent programs.There is shoreline fishing, and fishing available by rental boat. You can fish on both sides of the watershed, though there remain some restrictions on the use of the fishing pier on the north side near Brentwood.

The Tarantula Run, the largest run at the watershed, is usually held on the third Saturday of October every year. Want to know the current weather? Check our "Conditions" page.
