The East Bay’s Most Incredible Hikes

The East Bay’s Most Incredible Hikes

San Mateo County Memorial Park Campground near SF bay, CA: Love the deep tree cover and the hiking trails. Sites are spacious, owners of the concession/store are friendly (only open in summer ). Ranger staff very good, too. Sites have lots of parking, HUGE metal, anti-critter storage lockers, firepits. Nearby water spigots have tasty, clean, safe water. Bathrooms and showers (quarters required) were nearby and clean.

I'm told Tennessee Valley/Beach is a great place to take kids; just need to get there early in the day.

View facing the ocean and trails at Tennessee Valley, Marin- nice easy hike, ending at beach, good for kids
