Point Pinole Regional Shoreline

Point Pinole Regional Shoreline

East Bay Regional Park District logo.The journey is as scenic as the destination at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline, a 2,315-acre parkland right next to densely populated Pinole, Richmond, and San Pablo.

Trails lead through breezy meadows with wildflowers in season, through aromatic eucalyptus woods, or along bluffs and beaches on San Pablo Bay. There are beautiful views of Mt. Tamalpais, the Marin shoreline, and San Pablo Bay with its sailboat and shipping traffic.

Point Pinole Regional Shoreline features over 100 species of birds due to a myriad of habitats within its 2,315 acres. Bird life can be found on sandy shores, marshland, eucalyptus groves, meadows, and in a freshwater pond while meandering along the park’s twelve miles of trails. 

Visitors can birdwatch, hike, ride their bicycles or horses, or fish from Point Pinole’s 1,250-foot pier.

Dogs must be leashed on paved paths and in developed areas and are not allowed in marsh areas or on the pier. Dogs are limited to 3 per person. Dogs are not allowed on the pier or in marsh areas. There are foxtails all over during the summertime.

Well-behaved dogs under voice control can splash at the shore, but be respectful of others.

If your dog is spooked by noises, this is not a good park for them. There are trains that go by, and loud noises every few minutes coming from the rock quarry.

Please note: Goat grazing is a part of the Regional Park’s overall vegetation management program. It is strongly recommended that dog owners keep their animals leashed at all times when approaching the herd.
