The Niles Canyon Stroll & Roll is a biennial event where Highway 84/Niles Canyon Road is closed to vehicular traffic. This is an opportunity for people to walk and bike safely through the canyon with their friends and family.


Stroll & Roll began in 2015 by the late Alameda County Supervisor Richard Valle and former Supervisor Scott Haggerty in an effort to promote an initiative to create a Class 1 Trail through the Niles Canyon.
