Beautiful bay views abound from this unique peninsula. The area once was home to dynamite manufacture and, more recently, a landfill. Some of the debris still shapes the landscape and is visible on a walk around the Bulb today. Over time, a salt marsh has grown near old lagoons, and the northern plateau is home to Burrowing owls and other native wildlife. The park includes tidelands and upland property along 8.5 miles of shoreline of the San Francisco Bay. The park extends from the City of Richmond in the north to Emeryville and Oakland in the south, ending near the east anchorage of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. The tidelands comprise rich tidal marshes, sub tidal areas, and mudflats that extend bay ward from the shoreline including the Emeryville Crescent, Albany Mudflat, and Hoffman Marsh. Much of the existing upland area is the result of fill placement in the Bay west of the historic shoreline. The shoreline reflects the unique influences of both natural systems and human intervention.

Great bay views and some nice vegetation. Didn’t do the whole loop because of slippery seaweed covered concrete. Smelly at low tide.

Great little artistic walk

Easy and nice views

This is a very nice well-paved trail with spectacular views of the bay. Great for walking or bike riding.

Surreal setting. Juxtaposition of ocean views, guerrilla art, and urban rubble to explore.

This was such a beautiful fun place to check out. Very dog friendly- literally dogs are everywhere :) and lots of rock art & sculptures even a swing. And you get a beautiful view of the ocean which you can walk down to as well. Amazing view of the city and the sf/golden gate bridge. Lovey wildflowers everywhere.

Easy scenic off-leash walk and beach. Always a variety of graffiti and found "trash" art to see.

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.

Awesome views of the bay and a fun place to explore - lots of interesting artwork and rocks to check out. Muddy, rocky and lots of obstacles so be mindful when exploring close to the water. Cool beach for dogs and birding.

Great views of the city. Paved and dirt trail with rolling hills. Great place for jogging, biking and dog walking. Also awesome location for catching the sunset across the city.
