SHORELINE

Trail Description:
China Camp is always enjoyable with it's combination hill trails, bay and marsh views and the old China Camp Village that makes you feel you're back in the 30's. This time we took the southwestern end of the Shoreline trail. It climbs up from the China Camp Point parking lot steeply and ends about a half mile further near developments.
We turned around and reversed directions for a lunch and then to Turtle Back Hill. Turtle Back is fairly level and has delightful views of the marshes, Jake's Island, and the bay. Keep an eye on the marshes as you likely to spot a number of shore birds.
