Shoreline Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The Shoreline/Ridge Fire Loop begins at the remnants of a turn-of-the-century Chinese shrimpfishing village and explores the dry, oak-woodland hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. The pleasant series of loops provides hikers with plenty of options for longer or shorter hikes. Gorgeous views of San Pablo and San Francisco bays put the visual icing on the trail’s cake. Terrain: Dirt path, dirt, and gravel roads travel along the bay shore and rolling, oak-covered hillsides."
--Dan Brett, Hike America: Northern California (The Globe Pequot Press).
"This mostly level hike explores the northern part of China Camp, including Turtle Back Island. Good wildflowers from February-May. Bicycles likely on weekends."
