These eucalyptus trees mark the route of the narrow gauge California and Nevada railroad chartered in 1884 to connect California to the Nevada mines.

Only 23 miles of track were completed by 1891 from Emeryville to Bryant now Orinda. In addition to serving the many ranches in the area, the railroad started the custom of picnics and outdoor recreation in San Pablo Creek Valley which continues to this day.
