Experience part of the Bay Area Trail. This location near the marsh offers excellent birding. Remember to bring your binoculars
Just outside my front door. Nice easy walk along the marshes. Cool birds and in the summer, usually a cool breeze from the bay. One day I want to take a paddle board out on the creek itself. It can get muddy after a rain, and the ground is pretty pocky. So don't twist an ankle.
A very casual, easy walk with many birds and small critters to observe. The entire hike is out in the open with no shade, therefore if done on a hot day, take that into consideration.
