I live nearby and use this trail to get to my fishing spot. There are snakes, loose gravel, and steep hills to beware. Also, coyotes at night. Its very hot in the afternoon and windy from the west. If you do the shoreline trail, there's a lot of boulders and you might get stranded by the high tide. Its rather easy for the fit person. Nice views and fresh air. You can see birds and the occasional eagle and fishing hawk.

Great views of the strait and the Carquinez Bridge. The trail by down by the water is not a trail. We had to walk along the rocky shore. Would not hike that part of the trail again.

Great hike right in our own back yard!

I've walked/ hiked the park for 40 years.
Its in the Pacific Flyway. I've seen many species right here . Eagles, Hummers, Woodpeckers, Swans, Bufflehead, Bluebirds and Vultures to name just few. Bring your binoculars.

Easy to do, and plenty of trails easily viewed on google maps. Do this two or three times a week anywhere from 3 to 7 miles [if you do Dillon Point Rd]

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

The first part of the trail is very steep and I would rate it as strenuous. Trail links up with other trails to Benicia Community Park and Lake Herman.

Trailhead is behind the Kindercare business. Trail has no shade, very very hot in the summer. You'll be basically walking up and down the foothills, nice views, though.

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
