East Bay Regional Park District 80 years logoCarquinez Strait Regional Shoreline comprises 1,415 acres of bluffs and shoreline along Carquinez Scenic Drive between the town of Crockett and the hillsides overlooking Martinez.

This parkland provides a gateway to the river delta region along the northern edge of Contra Costa County.

The topography of this park consists of open, rolling grasslands, wooded ravines, eucalyptus-shaded meadows and river shoreline. Multi-purpose trails provide access to canyon views and ridge top vistas.

Dogs are allowed on-leash in developed areas, and off-leash (under voice control) in undeveloped areas of the park.

An easy/moderate 3.4 mile loop hike on a dirt fire road can be accessed from the parking lot. Total elevation change is about 900 feet. Too hot in the summer, this hike is best in late winter and early spring. Total hiking time is about one hour.

• Parking: No fee at staging areas
• Dog fee: None
• Water: Bring your own
• Please clean up after your dog so all of us can continue to enjoy the open space access afforded to our 4-legged companions.

Park Hours:
• 5 a.m. and 10 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

It’s almost always sweater weather in this snug little community on the Carquinez Strait. And Benicia’s friendly residents enjoy a small-town atmosphere just a hop, skip and jump from San Francisco and a shade over an hour from Sacramento. more »
