    What is earliest Gate opens at Pleasanton Ridge - Foothill Staging Area Lot

    Quick question, few of us want to do an early ride at Pleasanton Ridge Saturday 6/28. We are hoping to start early around 6:30-7am. The EBParks website says gate opens at 8am. Is this correct even during summer hours?

    Thanks for the help!

    The East Bay parks are open sunrise to 10 pm ,the gate maybe closed but you can stll use them. Park on road some where outside the gates and ride in.

    There is a small dirt lot outside of the gate at the Foothill staging area, so you can park there anytime. People use it for night rides frequently. The parking lot gate times are different from the times the park is open. I believe it is technically closed only from 10pm-5am, like most East Bay parks.

    Ah yes a blatant disregard for the law is always the solution. Closed for 7 hours? **** that! I ride at 3 AM **** the police!


    (the OP is looking for a place to park you idiot)

    p.s. don't send me any more private messages about how I need more EBRPD riding under my belt to laugh at your idiocy
