Skaggs Island Bike Ride
This is a rare opportunity to tour the 3,300-acre Skaggs Island, a former top secret naval communications site. It is now a part of the San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge and normally closed to the public. The tour includes a 7-mile loop with a few optional spur trails of 0.3 and 0.5 miles. Great for adults and children!

- Wildlife you might see: deer, fox, coyote, jack rabbit, turkey, great horned owl, white-tailed kite, & other raptors
- What to bring: bicycle, hat, dress in layers, water, picnic lunch, binoculars, camera, sunscreen

- Biking surface is mostly paved with some gravel sections; Skaggs Island is very flat (no hills)
