Richmond Bay Trail Map

on November 14, 2009

The San Francisco Bay Trail project aims to encircle the San Francisco and San Pablo bays in a continuous 500-mile trail. So far, 26 finished miles of the trail are in Richmond – more than in any other city. Whether you’re walking, running, biking, rollerblading, skateboarding, scootering or Segway-ing, covering a few miles of the trail is a great way to spend a day and see new parts of Richmond. Look at the map to plot your route and click the blue points to find out more about what to see and do.

Some parts of the trail are more scenic than others, and “Bay Trail” becomes a bit of a misnomer as you ride in bike lanes along Cutting Blvd. or Garrard Ave. where you lose sight of the water. The quality of the pavement also varies, and at some intersections the trail becomes a little difficult to navigate on wheels – if you’re biking, it’s best to dismount and act like a pedestrian. Walkers might also feel a little less safe along the stretches on Cutting and Garrard.
