Getting There

Park Features: This new park area is named in honor of the Dotson family, a multi-generational family known for environmental advocacy in the West Contra Costa County area and beyond. Dedicated in 2017, the area has undergone significant habitat restoration to mitigate potential future damage from rising sea levels as well as coast and inland flooding. Trails Highlights: This 1.5-mile out and back hike is an easy and pleasant shoreline walk on the edge of San Pablo Bay. The trail leads all the way out to the jetty point, where you can see across the bay and up towards Point Pinole. This is also a nice trail for a picnic or bike ride; the trail passes a new picnic area just before the San Francisco Bay Trail meets up with the unpaved China Clipper Spur Trail. Trail Directions: Take the San Francisco Bay Trail from the parking lot and cross over the bridge. Follow the SF Bay Trail until you reach the picnic area, then make a left onto the China Clipper Spur Trail, which will snake around. At the next trail post make a left onto the Cordgrass Jetty Trail, which will lead you all the way out to the point of the jetty. To return to the parking lot, follow Cordgrass Jetty Trail back the way you came, make a right at the trail post to get back on China Clipper Spur Trail. China Clipper Spur Trail will intersect with the San Francisco Bay Trail, where you turn right to head back to the parking lot. Park Hours: Nov - Feb: 7am - 4pm Mar - Apr: 7am - 5pm May - Sep: 7am - 7pm Oct: 7am - 5pm

Flat and easy hike. The parking lots were full, but it was great for social distancing. Most trails are wide fire roads and most people where wearing masks and being courteous. Also, at this time, there is no fee because there isn’t an attendant on duty.

Pretty hike along the marsh. Flat, easy, and quiet if you get there before the range opens (9am on Sunday). Loved seeing the birds and only saw a handful of people.

Flat and windy. Views were ok but had to listen to the sounds of guns from the shooting range throughout most of the hike. Not exactly what I wanted to hear. If I want sea views, I’ll go somewhere else.
