Many trails to choose from, all of which mostly flat and low impact. Doing a full circle around the outside comes out to somewhere between 3-4 miles, though there are many shortcuts in between if you're looking for something a bit shorter. Beautiful nature all...More

Went there for a hike mid-week and it was just amazing. Beautiful water views of San Pablo Bay. Could see from SF to Napa at various points. Lovely views of Mt. Tamalpais, Mt. Sutro, and the Carquinez Bridge. The hiking was mellow, since you have...More

This large park used to be a dynamite factory. After many explosions it became a regional park with eucalyptus groves, meadows and (mostly flat) bay-front and inland trails. Picnic tables here and there, some basic out houses with more refined facilities at the parking area,...More

You can see 360 degrees. It was a clear day. Could see Golden Gate Bridge as well as port/train; Chevron refinery; the whole of Richmond. Gave me a better perspective of the area.

A large park with varied terrain - nothing strep, but hilly - forest, meadow and Bay views - great for biking, even a fishing pier. And very underused.

This large park is a paradise for walkers, bikers, picnickers and fishers, tucked out of the way against the San Francisco Bay in a semi-hidden location in Pinole. A large picnic area with play structures is near the park entrance, although you have to walk...More
