A new section of San Francisco Bay Trail along Doolittle Drive in Oakland is nearing completion. This segment closes a half-mile gap in the SF Bay Trail and greatly improves safety for pedestrians and bicyclists by eliminating the need to use the shoulder of busy Doolittle Drive. The SF Bay Trail is a planned 500-mile walking and cycling path around the entire San Francisco Bay.
The new trail is part of Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline, which includes 748 acres of protected marshland, picnic sites, bird watching platforms, boat ramps, and miles of SF Bay Trail along the shoreline.
The project also includes a renovated boat, kayak and paddleboard launch area, repaved staging area parking lot, and one acre of marsh habitat restoration.
