The Carnegie Advisory Team (CAT) mission is to provide input on park projects and operations that relate to the user’s recreational experience and safety. The overall goal is to give stakeholders a voice with park staff to present ideas, complaints, and views on current projects, future projects, operations, and public outreach. CAT meetings provide a forum for park staff to inform stakeholders on park functions, park planning, and regulations and how they pertain to the way the park is or will be operated.
This partnership allows management to hear the visitor’s ideas and concerns and consider them when making decisions on activities that will affect the park. The partnership also brings transparency to the stakeholders on management decisions regarding park planning and operations.
Meetings are typically held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 4:30 pm to discuss new projects in the park and any relevant park updates. Duties also include trail creation and review, educating other visitors and point of contacts for the public to voice concerns and discuss with park staff. If you are interested in joing these meetings please contact Feedback.Carnegie@parks.ca.gov.
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.
