In between highway and great coastal views. Can get very windy at times.

The trail hugs the coast which is nice but so does the freeway. You’re not gettin away from it all on this run but the bay views are great.

Great for biking. There are lots of additional trails that you can do along this trail - Aquatic Park, Berkeley Marina / Cesar Chavez Park, Albany Bulb, and Point Isabel (no bikes allowed). I parked in the little public shore lot beside Chevy's. There was a lot of broken glass on the lot, so be careful. The SF bay trail breaks up around Golden Gate Fields. You have to go around it to the west. The parking lot was flooded close to the Albany bulb from all the recent storms and I had to walk my bike over the beach to get around it. The Richmond Marina was really nice. Near the end of the trail is the Rosie the Riveter museum and WWII-era Ford Assembly Plant. There is also a bus stop there. If you don't want to do a 20 mile round trip, you can probably use public transportation to get back to Emeryville.

beautiful views the entire way!! the whole path is paved, so not really 'trail running' but I didn't see a better option.
