Lovely hike yesterday. Great views, just challenging enough. Muddy bits, but easily avoidable. Could use a bit more signage. Wish people would keep dogs on leash.

Great view to San Francisco along the trail. Easy paved trail. Saw a multitude of birds on land and in water, though didn't see any wintering owls. The marina is peaceful as usual. The fishing pier has been blocked due to structural safety issues.

Very muddy trail in several sections this time! Shoes stuck in mud -- there is no escape. A few fallen trees on trail too, but can be easily navigated. Lots of dogs that should be on leash. But overall a great experience: a golden sunset, the air filled with sweet plant smell, and some REALLY loud frogs after dark.
