Further east in the Town of Rodeo, Lone Tree Beach and undeveloped portions of the trail corridor are accessible from the Lone Tree Staging area located on San Pablo Avenue at Pacific Avenue. Throughout its entire length, opportunities to view beautiful San Pablo Bay make for a pleasant trail experience.
