Bike bayside at Brickyard Cove and Cesar Chavez Park in the East Bay
One of the best places to fly a kite or exercise your dog is also one of the best for a super mellow bike ride. Cesar Chavez Park is a well-loved East Bay Regional Park with sweeping views of San Francisco Bay.
And the newly opened Brickyard Cove at McLaughlin Eastshore State Park makes a terrific connection to a glorious bay-side trail for your next outing. Starting from Brickyard Cove, you can make an easy and short loop of the new park on part-paved, part-gravel trail, getting views of the bay and the San Francisco skyline.
Picnic tables are also onsite here, and many bikers are now using this connection to the San Francisco Bay Trail. After Brickyard, we recommend heading north on the Bay Trail to get to Cesar Chavez Regional Park, where you can casually roll along paved trails surrounded by 90 acres of rolling hills, meadows, hilltops popular with kite flyers, and nice picnic spots and perfectly perched benches overlooking the Golden Gate.
