For Bay Area locals, it can be easy to overlook Alcatraz. It’s something you already did or something you continue to put off for later. But when a friend or family member visits, you decide to venture into the bay. Before joining the throngs of people making a beeline for the prison, take a ?fteen-minute break to walk the little-known Alcatraz Agave Trail. This lovely, manicured path meanders along the south side of the island. It features four species of agave plants and sensational views of San Francisco, the bay, and the Bay and Golden Gate bridges.
