Two trail loops showcase very different ecosystems on Rush Ranch. The first loop takes you through delta salt marsh and freshwater marsh, thick with rushes, reeds, and birdcall. The second loop crosses grasslands typical of those that blanket the surrounding hills, with views extending west to Mount Diablo. Rush Ranch—where salt marsh meets freshwater marsh, coastal plain meets Central Valley prairie, shady eucalyptus groves meet open A ranchland— the emphasis is on the ecotone.
