Description

This section of the San Francisco Bay Trail travels east from the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center and continues through the top of the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve. The first section follows Breakwater Avenue, and while there is no sidewalk here, there's enough of a parking lane for running to feel comfortable on this dead end road. Look for the entrance to the pedestrian bridge on the left that will lead over Highway 92.

Ahead, the trail will make a 90 degree turn to the left and then enter the reserve. The pathway is only a few feet above the waterline, so it almost feels like running in the middle of the bay with the flat salt marshes around you. The marshes are filled with a wide variety of birds and there are great views of the bay and peninsula. The east end of this section concludes at neighborhood near Eden Shores Boulevard.
