The hike to Oyster Point is not too difficult, except for the last mad scramble up Oyster Point, around sandstone barricades and avoidable lush groves of poison oak. The summit is a Miocene sandstone hogback, where you may perch on a rocky throne of your choice to view the glorious panorama of San Ramon and the Bay Area beyond and, in the opposite direction, the wilderness of Jackass Canyon far below. The scenery along the way to your destination is constantly changing and is a source of unending delight meadow wildflowers in the spring, fall colors in the depths of Sycamore Canyon and the fantastic Domengine sandstone formations to the east of Knobcone Point at any time.
The trailhead is located at the paved parking pull-out at Curry Point, South Gate Road
