The Carquinez Straight & Vallejo section of the San Francisco Bay Trail (SFBT) is 20 miles in Vallejo, Benicia, Crockett and Martinez. Trails start on the eastern side of Mare Island Strait, and various trails run around Carquinez Strait.

There are two ways to cross the Carquinez Strait by foot or bike. The first is to cross over on the Carquinez bridge, which connects Vallejo and Crockett. The second is to cross Benicia Martinez bridge. When completed, the Carquinez Strait Loop Trail will be 50-miles long.

The Napa River section of the SFBT has two spurs. A 2.5-mile trail runs along the river in JFK Memorial Park, a 350-acre public park with picnic tables, athletic fields, 18-hole golf course, playground and boat launch.

Another section is located south of Napa in American Canyon. This 1.5-mile trail is in Community Park, which has restrooms, baseball fields, picnic tables with barbeques and a playground.
