Manteca Tidewater Bikeway

road bikes with thin tires…stay away

June, 2021 by zamoragil.oz

Way to much gravel on the trail. Also, large cracks through paved areas.

Los Gatos Creek Trail

Love, love, LOVED this trail/ride!!!

June, 2021 by sw7inc

My husband and I stumbled up on this on YouTube. After watching a few rides we decided to go up and take a look, so thankful we did! Our ebikes would love this trip....even though it was supposed to be 99° that day. Once we were on the trail we were happily surprised we started at the Lexington reservoir. It was a bit of gravel but it was just fine then it turned to the pavement and there was a few wooden bridges it was quite delightful shady and beautiful along the creek in the water we couldn’t say enough things nice things about this right. We used our electric bikes. We went on a Thursday morning

San Francisco Bay Trail

A work in progress and totally worth it!

May, 2021 by mykgrant

I have a place in Point Richmond so I am basically lucky enough to be right on the trail.

I started getting into road biking so I'm taking the trail to new distances and exploring as I get more fit (and as my butt gets accustomed to the saddle...LOL).

This past weekend I went from Point Richmond to the Berkeley pier, a 25 mile round trip which was my personal best. It was a windy day and a small craft advisory out but I made it! (barely).

I absolutely love this trail. It's got spectacular views and is super interesting. You will never see the same thing twice. There are some sections that are more crowded than others and the pavement isn't super consistent (what do you want for free) so just be courteous to those that are moving slower (not that I'm all that fast yet).

Definitely a huge asset to the Bay Area. My goal is to do all 300+ miles of the trail which should take a while.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge Bike / Pedestrian Path

A Must Do Ride - Amazing

May, 2021 by mykgrant

I've ridden the bridge a couple of times now. You can start at the cute little town of Point Richmond and get there easily. The bridge is 5.5 miles long so a round trip is a respectable 11 mile ride. If you want to extend your mileage the East Bay Trail system is right there so you can go as far as you want to.

The bike trail is on the top deck of the bridge (both directions) well marked, safe from traffic due to concrete barricades, clean, not too steep, not too crowed and you get your share of elevation but not too much. Amazing views from the top deck!

You absolutely have to do this!

Mokelumne Trail

Trail distance markers

April, 2021 by ralexander2003

I enjoy the trail and I want to bring to your attention that the distance marker along the trail are no longer visible. Part of the fun walking and riding the trail is keeping track of the distance traveled. Please restore the painted distance markers.

Richmond Greenway

Worst trail ever

March, 2021 by grannygoose111

If it’s not the homeless, it’s the Garbage as well as the glass . It is a terrible thing for Richmond to allow this to happen the quality of life that they try to promote they don’t keep the trails clean. They force bike riders to ride on the streets by not taking care. They have a bathroom on the trail that the homeless live in.

Sabercat Creek Trail

Creek, and signboards along the way to describe ancient history right on the spot.

Alameda Creek Regional Trail

Very nice trail. Lots of waterfowl, turkeys, turtles, ground squirrels, wildflowers depending on time of season. Go as little or as far as you want.

Marsh Creek Trail

nice ride

February, 2021 by jmorasci

Pleasant ride, somewhat busy on weekends. After a windy day you might find lots of twigs and leaves on the path. Crosses a few streets but not much traffic. Could use a trail marker in a couple places. Nice parks along the way but no bathroom except at Veterans Park just off the trail in Brentwood.

Ygnacio Canal Trail

Paved, easy, mostly flat trail

February, 2021 by ercarter

This is a nice paved trail that runs alongside places like the Boundary Oaks golf course and Lime Ridge park. It is nice for bikes as well as pedestrians -- and dogs on leash! It's a very low impact walk with very little slope. The tunnel underneath Ygnacio Valley Road is the coolest with lighting and is fairly clean (i.e., not a nasty stinky tunnel).
