    This is a great place to go relax after another grind in the valley. Just be sure to bring sun block, there is NO shade. Otherwise, enjoy the flat, easy trails!

    So close, and yet so far... When walking on Baer Island you feel far away from the city, and yet 101 is just over yonder. Gates and fences keep local domestic animals out of the park so birds flourish. There are two raised platforms to stand on and really see the expanse of the park.

    Great place for a walk during the day time. Parking is free and you can fish on the old Dumbarton Bridge. Great place to catch sturgeon, sharks, and sting rays. Awesome views too. Just make sure you only go during the day time. At some of the old historical buildings on the trail, saw a broken bong on the trail and a syringe. Most likely some of the druggies use the area at night.

    The Wildlife Refuge itself is pretty nice. It's cut up my an active railroad line and the ghost town of Drawbridge. But its building could use some maintenance and updating. And they aren't open very often.

    This is a huge wildlife preserve with property all around the south bay. This area seriously degraded due to industrial development in the 20th century. Hopefully the preserves and restoration can bring it back to life in the 21st century. There are lots of scenic biking/hiking trails along the levies in the bay so you can watch the progress first hand.
