COVID-19 Guidelines - (February 16, 2022)
Protect yourself, family, friends and your community by following these prevention measures:
- Know Before You Go – Prior to leaving home, check the status of the park unit you want to visit to find out what restrictions and guidelines are in place. Have a back-up plan in case your destination is crowded. Stay home if you are sick
- Plan Ahead – Some restrooms will be temporarily closed to keep up with cleaning schedules. Bring soap/hand sanitizer.
- Play It Safe – Find out what precautions you should take when exploring the outdoors, especially if this is your first time visiting the State Park System. Learn more at parks.ca.gov/SafetyTips.
- Be COVID-19 Safe – State Parks continues to meet guidance from local and state public officials as COVID-19 is still present and still deadly. Starting Feb. 16, 2022, state guidance requires masking for unvaccinated individuals in indoor settings, such as museums and visitor centers. Fully vaccinated individuals are recommended to continue indoor masking when the risk may be high. Please plan ahead as local county guidelines may differ from state guidance and visitors are urged to follow county guidelines when required. Read the latest COVID-19 guidance at COVID19.ca.gov.
- Leave No Trace – Leave areas better than how you found them by staying on designated trails and packing out all trash. Do not disturb wildlife or plants.

Welcome to Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area!
Located in the hills of eastern Alameda and western San Joaquin counties, Carnegie is one of nine SVRAs administered by the California Department of Parks and Recreation. Carnegie SVRA has more than 1,300 acres of riding area, over 80 miles of trails, and is a fun, challenging, and scenic place to ride. There are numerous off-highway opportunities for motorcycles, ATVs, 4x4s, and side-by-sides. Visit MotoMart for refreshments, bike parts and riding gear. Rest from riding in the day use area or spend the night in the campground. You might even catch a glimpse of the local wildlife.
The park is characterized by rolling hills, dry rocky washes, and steep, rugged canyons with outstanding opportunities for hillclimbs and many scenic views. Carnegie provides a setting for off-highway vehicle users of all skill levels. The hills are divided into two use areas: open riding and designated trails only in Resource Management Areas (RMAs). Roads, trails, and riding areas are two way; please watch for oncoming traffic.
