Trail Description:
At this time of year rains are often imminent, so we usually head for a nearby park. Pt. Pinole's Bay View and Marsh Trails provide not only an excellent overview of the park, but are long enough for a decent hike and have excellent views of the surrounding bay and wildlife. Bring your binoculars!
