“An incredible trail across the salt flats of the San Francisco bay.”— Franco Folini
The trail starts at the Visitor Center on Marshlands Road. You can easily find parking here and it's free. From the road, take the Apay Way on the right after going over the freeway. The trail passes the Dumbarton Quarry on your right and starts running along the coast.
Stay on the coast for 3.5 miles. Halfway down, the Apay Way Trail becomes the Bayview Trail. When you reach the Alameda Creek, turn left on the Alameda Creek Trail (paved trail) pointing to the bay. At the end of the creek, the trail turns left pointing to the Dumbarton Bridge.
You are now on the Shoreline Trail. The trail is almost magic: the bay is on your right and the salt flats on your left. Once you finally reach the bridge, turn left and you're back on Marshlands Road. A few miles and you're back at the Visitor Center where you started.
