A number of paved pathways connect the various park areas and can be used for a brisk walk or a casual stroll. Please observe all trail signs and posted speed limits. Bicycles and motorized vehicles are not allowed off designated paved areas. Please respect your fellow trail users and follow the trail etiquette guidelines for safe and courteous trail use. This is a great area to take kids to watch the Airplanes at SFO.
excellent trail for bicycling, hiking, trail running and families. OK for rollerblading (bad pavement or hardpack dirt in places). Kids will love being able to see airplanes landing at SFO. Most of this is part of the Bay Trail and is primarily paved, and away from streets. Easy for kids to bicycle.
The trail is basically nonexistent between the Westin to Broadway Ave, where you'll have to walk along Old Bayshore Hwy, but you can get extremely close to SFO at Bayfront park at the northmost end of the trail.
From Broadway Ave, get to Airport Blvd and go south, where there are multiple parking points and several parks & hotels along the way to take in views, a meal, or bathroom breaks. You will need to get back on Airport Blvd briefly where the boat/restaurant is, for about 1/2 mile, before you can continue on the Bay Trail into Coyote Point Park.
It is a little tricky getting through Coyote Point Park, from which you can easily continue all the way to under Hwy 92 (about 8.5 mi from Bayfront Park) and into Redwood Shores.
There is little flora/fauna to see which is why it's only 4 stars.
