Point Pinole Regional Shoreline is a delight. It was once the location of a huge dynamite factory, sited remotely for fear of explosions. The views across the bay to the Marin shore are tranquil, and the eucalyptus groves scattered across the hilly terrain give little sign of the area’s industrial past. There are 12 miles of trails in the park. Speciality birds: Resident—White-tailed Kite, Anna’s Hummingbird, Western Meadowlark. Summer—Cinnamon Teal; Elegant and Least Terns. Winter—Pacific Loon; Western and Clark’s Grebes; Black Turnstone. This eTrail provides detailed information on birding strategies for this specific location, the specialty birds and other key birds you might see, directions to each birding spot, a detailed map, and helpful general information.
