Nice views, lots of traffic

Easy walk on Alameda South Shore. Great views of the bay and the city along the beach.

Great easy ride. Start left after the bridge to go through the industrial side first. The last half will then be a great view of the city and water.

Taken this trail many times to get to south shore.

Great views of SF

Our pup gets nervous around cars and we went on a busy day so we struggled a little. otherwise a super pretty, easy paved walk.

This is an excellent trail for an easy evening walk.
Pros:
1. Scenic: The view of Bay Bridge and SF downtown is really nice. Reminds me of lakeshore trail in Chicago.
2. Easy access: the park is easily accessible and plenty of free street parking available :)
3. Friendly: People strolling/running in the park are very friendly to humans and dogs (perhaps not cats or reptiles, not sure).

Cons: Not a lot of water fountains :(

Beautiful view. A few water fountains near the bay farm ferry. Good road condition for running/biking. But have to cross three roads, all with signal lights.

Great protected pathway for walking, running and biking with excellent views of San Francisco. Paved with some stretches offering pavement and packed dirt. Texture is rough in many places and have to cross a few roads, but with crossing lights.

Great bike ride along the bay. There is a designated path for bicyclists and a separate path for walkers/runners/dogs. The last half mile or so is a dirt path that extends down behind some houses to the bridge to Bay Farm Island.

A nice flat walk with great views -- at least for the first half or so. If you do the whole loop counterclockwise the second half (ish) is a lot more industrial and less scenic.
