Celebrate Bay Day on the Bay Trail
Walk or roll to get the full experience of the Bay Trail.
There’s no better way to escape the hustle of everyday life than by getting into nature. Get out and explore the Bay Trail by walking, rolling, hiking or biking.
Bring the whole family.
Kids will love the family-friendly activities found at many locations along the Bay Trail. Don’t miss fun educational spots like the Alviso Environmental Education Center in San Jose, Crab Cove Visitor Center in Alameda and Rosie the Riveter Visitor Center in Richmond.
Don’t forget Fido.
Many Bay Trail locations allow dogs. Check local websites for restrictions before you go, and look for signs that show where your canine friends can be off-leash.
Watch out for birds.
The Bay Trail is home to many nesting communities, which can make for excellent birdwatching opportunities (including endangered species like the Ridgway’s Rail). The best locations will vary by season, depending on the migratory patterns of different types of birds.
Get a new perspective on the city.
The Bay Trail runs through 47 cities and often provides an unexpected view of a place you’ve been many times before. (The path leading up to the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge is a real gem!)
Get away from it all.
You’ll find the Bay Trail in rural communities, too. Find peace and quiet and reconnect with nature.
