Great hike with lots of trails to choose from. All paths have great sights. Parking cost $6 cash or check only so that would’ve been nice to know before arriving but atms and stores are near by to get cash. Well worth it and looking forward to going back and trying more trails. Also pretty cool that here’s a botanical garden with in the park as well. Highly recommend

Several different trails to choose from in this park. Started off on this trail and started to wonder. Ended up on the shore line. The dogs loved to cool down & swim. Enjoyed dogs are allowed on the trails. We ended up doing 3.5miles. But walking along that shore line was a workout. It's really rocky.

Nice easy walk. Not challenging at all while offering some great scenery and a nice breeze ☺️ Paid the 6 dollars to support our State Parks & the lady out at the gate was really nice & helpful. Will definitely be coming back to do some more exploring.

Very relaxing and not difficult to do. I recommend a good stretch and if you get a chance, go all the down and walk the shores along the bay. Jump and skip along the natural terrain for an amazing fun filled hike.

I started from the Benicia Bay trail at the Glen Cove to Benicia State Park (Dillion Point). The hike is full of splendid views of the Carquinez Strait, Benicia and Alfred Zampa bridges, Mount Diablo and Carquinez Regional Shoreline. Total distance was 6 miles and the hike was rated as easy since the trail is hilly but not steep.

Great for a day walk, but beware of ticks! Both my husband and I got bit after our walk out here.

Beautiful view from the end point. Take the road (by car, foot, or bike) to the dead end and you will enjoy it! The trails are flat for the most part but if you want a challenge go up the hill towards glen cove. There are several trails above the main road that loop back. Parking costs about $6. You can park for free if you search for it.

A nice walk if you're looking to get out and about without too much challenge. It takes you through the park marshland and around the bay. The point at the end is nice and there are some picnic spots. Dogs welcome, but bring your own bags because the dispensers are usually empty
