Found this place when attending a 5K run and wow, it's such a beautiful place. The trails run along the shoreline and through trees and it's a wonderful place to bring the family and the dog to explore. Whether you're an avid hiker or just...More

You can see 360 degrees. It was a clear day. Could see Golden Gate Bridge as well as port/train; Chevron refinery; the whole of Richmond. Gave me a better perspective of the area.

This large park is a paradise for walkers, bikers, picnickers and fishers, tucked out of the way against the San Francisco Bay in a semi-hidden location in Pinole. A large picnic area with play structures is near the park entrance, although you have to walk...More

Point Pinole is not the easiest place to find, but it is well worth small parking fee. A short walk away from the parking lot, the entrance of the park opens to a vista of well spaced out picnic tables and trees. Several trails in...More

Bought a lunch and headed to the park. Walked a bit and found a great spot for our picnic. Couldn't see the bay, but we were surrounded by trees with washrooms and a fountain close by. Afterwards, we walked out to the point and spent...More

If you go during the week, it's rarely crowded so one can traverse the trails in peace. Not super big, there are trails that wind through trees, fields and along the San Pablo bay waterfront; there is a shuttle that transports people to and from...More
