Accessibility: Wheelchair accessible
Description: Many options, all easy. Spectacular views of San Francisco, Bay Bridge and the Port of Oakland. The paved and graveled paths lead next to mudflats which when exposed in winter at low tide are crowded with feeding shorebirds. Also in winter, migrating water birds are common on the bay.
What to bring: Good hiking shoes or boots for the trails, layered clothing for variable weather, water, windbreaker, snacks. Hiking poles are optional. Binoculars will be helpful for birdwatching
How to get there: Take Hwy. 24 west to I-980 west, towards Oakland. Exit at the 11th/12th Street off-ramp onto Brush Street. Continue straight, and turn right (northwest) at 7th Street. Continue straight on 7th Street and past Maritime Street to the stoplight at Middle Harbor Road. Proceed through the intersection and take the first right turn into the MHSP parking lot. The mast is just west of the parking.
It should take 15 minutes to get there from Hwy 80 at University in Berkeley.
