The San Francisco Bay Trail is said to be 400 miles long some day, surrounding the entire Bay. This portion that I have hiked on a number of times is in South San Francisco and Brisbane on the peninsula.

The trail is mostly paved in this section. There is a small shop/cafe by the pier at Oyster Point for refreshments and a lot of people like to fish for Tiger Sharks on the pier itself. It really is a pretty beautiful trail which travels along the shallow waters for miles, I intend to explore further and add more details soon.

I parked at the public shore lot right by Genentech off Forbes Blvd where I hiked south a bit and then back north and past my car, only to turn around. The only downside of this trail is that no matter where you hike, the route back is going to be the same exact trail. I don’t know of any loops to it.
