Description

With a scenic drive and varying landscapes, this unique parkland has something for everyone. The hiking trails offer views of the strait and surrounding hills. The valley offers perches and nest sites for the red-tailed hawk, golden eagle and other bird species. Plant species found at the shoreline are typical of annual grassland and coastal vegetation. There are no reservable picnic or camping areas but there are plenty of areas to explore. The recently restored scenic drive that stretches high above the shoreline offers views of bluffs and passing ships; it has quickly become a local favorite. This parkland comprises 1,415 acres of bluffs and shoreline between the towns of Crockett and Martinez. It is home to mule deer, gray fox, and many small mammals. Birds such as the western meadowlark and American goldfinch forage and nest in the area. Visitors might also spot owls, hawks, and other birds of prey roosting in the eucalyptus. Equestrians, hikers, bikers, and picnickers enjoy this scenic space. Boats cruise through the strait into the river delta. Remnants of a grain warehouse, residences, and a brick office building in the Eckley area are reminders of the history of this region.
