Trail Description: There are no official maps to our knowledge. The Bay Area Ridge trail runs the length of the park starting from grassy hills in the west, and ending in the marshes on the east side with little elevation change once out of the hills. There is also a rocky beach trail with nice channel views starting at Dillon Point near the last parking lot. 

Trail Location:
There are several parking lots. One is off of Military Avenue on the East side of the park. The rest are off Rose Drive on the west with several towards the end near Dillon Point. Trails are accessible from any of the parking lots, but the garden and beach access is on the West side.
