Let’s explore the scenic Bay Trail on the southern shoreline of San Pablo Bay.
We’ll hike three miles of Bay Trail completed between Hercules and Pinole, including spurs at each end to view planned links to Point Pinole Regional Shoreline in Richmond and Lone Tree Point in Rodeo. Our route includes a spectacular bridge completed last fall. This will be a one-way hike with a car shuttle.
TOTAL DISTANCE: This is a moderate walk of about four miles on a paved, multi-use trail with very little elevation change.
From Oakland/Richmond, take I-80 and Exit 24 at Willow Avenue in Hercules. Turn right on Willow Avenue and drive 0.4 miles to San Pablo Avenue. Turn left on San Pablo Ave. and after 0.2 miles turn right on Victoria Crescent West. At the stop sign, turn right on Victoria Park Street, drive to the end and park at Victoria Park.
