For years, only one of the four bridges across San Francisco Bay, Dumbarton Bridge, accommodated bikes and pedestrians. Now Bay residents can celebrate the opening of another cross-bay connection, this time on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Decades of advocacy culminated in the opening of this trail in November of 2019. And just to show how anticipated this trail was: there were 5000 one-way trips recorded in the first two days of its use.
The Bridge trail begins on Castro Street in Richmond and heads east, paralleling I-580, up to East Francisco Boulevard in San Rafael. Bike and pedestrian traffic is separated from vehicular traffic using concrete barriers. The trail is an important piece towards completion of the San Francisco Bay Trail.
