Lower Tubbs Island Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A long, contemplative hike along ranch roads and levee tops leads through the marshlands along Sonoma County’s San Pablo Bay coastline. Expect excellent birding and solitude, especially along the loop on Lower Tubbs Island itself.Depending on the season, hikers can view a variety of plant and animal life along the trail. More than 300 wildlife species either live in or pass through the tidal preserve. Birds are a huge draw: The refuge attracts seabirds and shorebirds galore, including ducks, pelicans, gulls, plovers, and sandpipers. Songbirds and raptors (including northern harriers and white-tailed kites) also nest and hunt in the marshes. Bring a guidebook."
