Looking for a Scenic, Uncrowded Bay Trail Outing?

from Friends of the Bay Trail in Richmond

The Landfill Loop Trail would be an excellent choice if you’re looking for a Bay Trail experience offering scenic vistas and abundant bird life without crowded conditions. This three-mile loop located between the huge, rich tidal marshes at the mouths of Wildcat and San Pablo Creeks was created and is maintained by Republic Services. You will find along the trail ten engaging interpretive panels describing the natural and human history of the site. There was a surprising abundance of bird life this morning, especially large wading birds of many species sheltering in place when most have migrated north and inland. Especially striking were the many, active Black-necked Stilts, as well as Avocets in breeding plumage.

Referring to attached map, the Landfill Loop may be accessed by bicycle via the Wildcat Creek & Marsh Trail or by car from Parr Blvd. as described on the trail guide.
