The upper Alameda Creek descends through remote wildlands and ranches, Sunol and Ohlone Regional Wilderness Preserves. The Arroyo Viejo Creek Watershed begins on the western slope of the Oakland hills and runs west through Oakland to the San Francisco Bay, narrowing as it passes through flatter land.
