The Regional Shoreline of Carquinez Strait consists of 1,415 acres of bluffs and shores along the Scenic Drive of Carquinez, between Crockett City and hillsides overlooking the city. It is situated at the bottom of Contra Costa County and provides access to the river delta. Stride up to 750 meters above Carquinez Strait, the coastal hills are strong. The views of the Benicia State Recreation Area from the highest elevation reach across Carquinez Strait to the north. The horizon is crossed by the summits of Mt. Tamalpais west and Mt. Diablo east by Franklin Ridge along the Franklin Ridge Loop Trail and the California Riding and Hiking Trail.
The uniqueness of this park has always pleasantly surprised. Excellent dog trail, too. There are quite steep hills all over the park, you should be careful. The spot to stroll is one of the highest. The view along the bay is beautiful. Nice area, good fishing liked to look in and out of large boats. Here dogs love to swim and dive. Good views. Great points of view. The place is hidden by many things, and we advise you to visit here. This is a beautiful place! There are many trail options. Parking is free of charge. Registration free of charge. Easy access outside Martinez city centre. Once you get up the hill and breathe, a beautiful hilltop walk will pay you the prizes.
Carquinez Strait, in northern California, is a small tidal area. As it drains into San Francisco Bay, it forms part of the Sacramento and the San Joaquín tidal estuary. The eight miles of the stretch of the strait connects Suisun Bay, the bay of the San Pablo Bay north of the San Francisco Bay, which receives the waters of the combined rivers. The strike formation in prehistoric times occurred at the end of the last ice age, when the current Sacramento and San Joaquin valleys were filled by a freshwater reservoir. Melting ice from high Sierra Nevada raised the lake level as a natural path to the Pacific Ocean was created by seismic activity.
