There’s A Little Known Canyon In Northern California That’s Got Amazing Movie History

Truth be told, I grew up just minutes away from Niles Canyon. I heard rumors about the beauty of the place where Alameda Creek meets the green rolling hills of Sunol. I heard about how cyclists love the area, and how their annual antique show downtown is amazing. It wasn’t until a girlfriend who lives nearby took me here for the day this month that I discovered a big piece of movie history and a hidden gem of a day trip.

Next time you’re looking to get out of the house, look no further than Niles Canyon. I wish I’d made my way here 40 years ago! But, hey, so now you know. When are you heading here?
