We hiked on the Franklin Ridge Loop Trail in the Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline in Martinez, CA. We hiked over a mile along the shore over the Arch Bridge and past the Sunken Schooner in the Martinez Regional Shoreline. Then we walked up to Rankin Park where we will start hiking up the steep coastal hills to the Franklin Ridge Loop trail. It was a beautiful hike.
I started at the Carquinez Scenic Dr trailhead, hiked up to Port Costa and back, then continued to the Eckley Pier for a total of 3.2 miles. This was an easy hike and I enjoyed the views of the Carquinez Strait and the Carquinez Regional Shoreline.
