Winter high tides are good times to see rails at the shoreline’s Arrowhead Marsh and, if there has been enough rain, lots of ducks and shorebirds in the adjacent seasonal wetlands. High tide (6.9 ft.) is at noon.
Meet at Fruitvale BART at 10 a.m. or the Tidewater Staging Area at 10:20 a.m. We’ll ride the SF Bay Trail from East Creek Point to Damon Slough and Arrowhead. Return is via Doolittle Dr. and Fernside Blvd. Bring snacks, lunch, and liquids. Bicycle helmet required. Rain cancels.

Cross bridge and turn left onto Tidewater Ave. and go .25 mi. to the Tidewater Staging Area on the right. If you get to Lesser St. you went a bit too far.
