Nice easy hike. Beautiful views. A bit windy and chilly.

Easy trail with nice views and beautiful birds ❤️ can spot dumbarton bridge and 92 freeway! It has no shade but nice ocean breeze.

This was nice for an easy family (dog, baby, grandma, and myself) walk.

I love the meadowlark trail
Loop part of this trail for birding! Also fewer people! The bayview
on a foggy day was meh.

So many options for connecting trails. Lots of quiet spots to enjoy the amazing views. Great for children.

Four stars for the paved roads, nice facilities (there's a visitor's center and restrooms, a garden, and a picnic area) and the beautiful views of the bay. Negatives are that the smell is truly awful (a marsh is a marsh) and it's not really a hike, more of a walk. Not a lot of elevation gain.

Not my fav. I ran it a few times only because it was local. The views are chill, but for a person that likes to jog/hike this hike kinda sucks lol. Smells like shit and there's very little shade. I almost got sprayed by a skunk, I probably cleared all the spider webs one morning lol.

on Bayview Trail

My favorite running trail - expansive views, varied terrain (several other hillier trails connect to this one).

The last time I hiked this trail was 30 years ago. The trail is still the same but most of the trail is now paved and lots more new trails cutting through this main trail. We chose to do the incline part first up the steps to re-enact my first hike up here. The views of the bay, the meadow, the eucalyptus trees, and the sight of a herd of about a couple hundred sheep homing was a plus. Though it's the dry season, the smell of licorice along the trail was a nostalgic reminder of the good ol' days.

A longer version of the Bayview trail.
the part on No-name trail is full of birds and is rather long, so biking is a good options. (I hiked this time, but I did bike this trail once).
Very nice sights and wildlife on the trail

Beautiful trail with lots of scenery to enjoy and piers to take restful breaks on. The marsh smells, well, like a marsh... So just expect nature to be itself. The paved roads were mildly bumpy, but not enough to discourage cycling.

wilderness surrounded by the city life,
anytime I'm tired of the city crowd, this is my hideaway, alongside the Don Edwards wild life refuge

One of the most scenic places. Not too many people on weekdays. A great way to spend your day.

Great View. Fun trail to walk. I suggest combining it with Red Hill Trail to get a bird’s eye view of the bay. For a full day hike you can start at the end of Alameda Creek trail and Beard Staging center or Quarry Staging center. Take the spur off at Alameda Creek Trail and go up to the top of Red Hill. On the back side of Red Hill is the Dairy Glen center which has a bath room, bbq pit, water fountain and pavilion. The hills will give your quads a good work out. They are steep so coming down can be rough on the knees.

Amazing view

Real nice 4-5 mile loop. We had plenty of fun, located rabbits, gophers, a variety of birds. You can turn this into a reasonably moderate hike by climbing some of the hills (while they are not on the trail path).
