San Francisco Bay Trail

Explore the largest protected shoreline of any city in the Bay Area... Richmond.

San Francisco Bay Trail

The Richmond portion of the San Francisco Bay Trail has a fascinating and little known history.

(Published Wednesday, July 19, 2017)

We’ll explore the longest protected shoreline of any city in the Bay Area… on segments of the Bay Trail in Richmond.  We’ll see where ships were built that helped win World War II, where passengers on transcontinental trains once boarded ferries for their final leg to San Francisco, and where explosives were made that helped build the west. Along the way, we’ll also encounter a lovely habitat for birds rubbing shoulders with an oil  refinery and an old landfill and giving way to glorious views of San Pablo Bay.
