San Francisco Bay Trail
The San Francisco Bay Trail welcomes hikers, joggers, bicyclists, skaters and wheelchair users to more than 350 miles of trails that circle the bay.
Get outside and enjoy what this region is known for around the world — breathtaking and inspiring views that offer unique experiences for everyone.
The vision? A total of 500 miles by foot or by wheel through 47 cities, across 7 toll bridges, along shorelines, BBQ spots, over 130 parks, remote locations and so much more.
Get on the trail, then tell your friends. They’ll thank you.
Looking for an experience to call your own? Walking, birding, dog parks, beaches, picnic areas, bicycle paths, fishing, water trails... easy to access paths and remote areas, too.
