Big Break Regional Shoreline is a part of the great 1,680-square-mile San Francisco/San Joaquin Delta estuary in Northern California. The water flowing past Big Break Regional Shoreline through the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers drains half of California's watershed, and creates the largest estuarine environment on Pacific shores. This "Inland Coast" is home to 70 species of birds, and provides valuable habitat for beavers, muskrats, and river otters.
Easy trail, lots of educational infographics throughout. Took my kids and dogs, fun was had by all. The coolest thing was the enlarged map of the Delta with a 3D rendition of Mt. Diablo.
This is a good trail for handicap as well as the older generation folks. The hike is hardball and no dirt. You will go through 2 subdivisions. Just stick to the left hand side.
good trail need maintenance can get lost having to transfer from points wind is brutal but good views with Mt Diablo the antioch bridge and the delta
