Make sure to check out AdventureSmart for relevant safety information before your adventure begins.
Please note that due to the popularity of Hayward the parking lot often reaches capacity prior to 9 a.m. on a sunny weekend to which the gates will close to vehicles. Please plan ahead and have an option B!
