San Francisco Bay Water Trail Program Opens 26 New Sites

Docks at the water trail

The San Francisco Bay Water Trail opened 26 new launching and landing sites for non-motorized boats on the Bay. The Water Trail is a regional trail linking nine counties in the Bay Area. Administered by ABAG, the Water Trail program is an ongoing effort to create a network of launch and landing sites, or "trailheads," to inspire people in human-powered boats and beachable sail craft to enjoy the historic, scenic, cultural, and environmental richness of San Francisco Bay through multiple-day and single-day trips on the Bay.

The Water Trail joins three other regional trail systems:
San Francisco Bay Trail - a 500-mile shoreline trail around San Francisco Bay

Bay Area Ridge Trail - a 550+-mile trail for hikers, mountain bicyclists, and equestrians along the ridgelines overlooking San Francisco Bay

California Coastal Trail - a network of public trails along the 1200-mile California coastline
