A new colorful birding brochure for the 50-mile Carquinez Strait Scenic Loop Trail is hot off the press.


The Loop & Birding Opportunities

Both the Ridge Trail and Bay Trail converge around the Carquinez Strait, presenting a unique opportunity to create a shared loop trail.

The sweeping vistas, as well as the diversity of habitats found in the area—tidal marshes, open bay, grassland, and riparian woodland—offer abundant birding opportunities.


The Brochure

The brochure features nine areas along the trail (and just off the trail) and offers access information and tips on endemic and visiting species to watch for at different seasons. Find out where you might spot a Spotted Towhee or spy a soaring Golden Eagle.

The Bay Area Ridge Trail Council, San Francisco Bay Trail, and San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory collaborated on the brochure, which was funded by the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, the San Francisco Foundation, PG&E, the Coastal Conservancy, and an anonymous donor.
