Alviso Slough Trail (Alviso Marina County Park) Professional Review and Guide
"Boardwalks and easy levee-top walking lead out through marshlands to the bayshore, where you’ll enjoy fantastic bay views and birding opportunities. Snowy egrets rise like shooting stars out of the reeds and rushes that surround Alviso Slough. They have plenty of company, with other shorebirds cruising low over the water looking for a meal, and still others poking in the mud at low tide for the tasty nuggets that hide below the surface. The birds—and the hikers who enjoy their company— reap benefits proffered by the slough’s proximity to the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, which preserves about 30,000 acres of water and tidal lands in the South and East Bays."
