Runner Notes

Usually heavy with pedestrians and sightseers.

Description

This frequently-visited, paved walkway leads to the Point Bonita Lighthouse, often referred to as "the gate keeper to the San Francisco Bay." Looking back toward the coast line, there are views into Bonita Cove and then out to the "Potato Patch Shoal" once you reach level ground. If the iron gates are opened, the lighthouse is open to visitors. Continue through the tunnel and when you come out the other end, cross the bridge down to the Point Bonita Lighthouse. Crossing the bridge is limited to a few people at a time.

Watch for ships and boats as they come and go and have your binoculars and camera ready at all times.
