About Point Pinole

Protruding into San Pablo bay, Point Pinole offers a pleasant space to picnic, visit the ruins of old Dynamite production facilities, fish along a well maintained pier, and take in the calming views along the Pinole shoreline.

Ample hiking trails circumscribe and criss cross the area offering differing vantages and points of interest. The best introduction is a 4.9 mile loop hike from Cook’s Point Trail, to Owl Alley, to the Bay View trail.┬áDiverse birds can be found throughout the surrounding marsh lands.

Quick jaunt out to the Hayward Regional Shoreline

Made a quick stop at the Hayward Regional Shoreline at the Winton Ave entrance. This is an extremely flat area that looks great for an easy stroll or a trail run. The bay breeze kept the hike cool despite the 90+ degree temperatures further inland.
