I started from the Benicia Bay trail at the Glen Cove to Benicia State Park (Dillion Point). The hike is full of splendid views of the Carquinez Strait, Benicia and Alfred Zampa bridges, Mount Diablo and Carquinez Regional Shoreline. Total distance was 6 miles and the hike was rated as easy since the trail is hilly but not steep.
I love this trail
Great for a day walk, but beware of ticks! Both my husband and I got bit after our walk out here.
Beautiful view from the end point. Take the road (by car, foot, or bike) to the dead end and you will enjoy it! The trails are flat for the most part but if you want a challenge go up the hill towards glen cove. There are several trails above the main road that loop back. Parking costs about $6. You can park for free if you search for it.
A nice walk if you're looking to get out and about without too much challenge. It takes you through the park marshland and around the bay. The point at the end is nice and there are some picnic spots. Dogs welcome, but bring your own bags because the dispensers are usually empty
