Enjoy walking or biking year round at the Benicia State Park. Very pleasant, mostly flat. At the end of the walk/ride there is a trail down to the beach. Very relaxing and pleasant.

We use the local boat launch near this park but the park is gorgeous, have a view to die for, lots of green grassy areas and a very nice sheltered beach (when the wind is not coming right at you). Just beautiful!

This area is exercise friendly. It's a great running trail. Not too many cars pass by. There's a bathroom at the very end. Parking available.

We love this park. We take our bikes and bike all along the Carquinez Strait. It has beautiful scenery with the perfect amount of hills and long stretches.

It's a nice place to go bike riding, walking and general exercise. You can fish and its a good place to just walk around.

I have mixed feeling about this Park. We visited in mid-August, everything above the water and wetlands was dry a uninviting. Maybe this would be better in the spring and might be a good place to camp then. The parking lot at the end of...More
