Candlestick Point State Recreation Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"In 1978 Candlestick Point became California’s first urban state park. In addition to hiking, the park is popular for picnicking, fishing, and windsurfing. For a state park, the area is still a little rough around the edges, but Candlestick Point’s bay-front location is full of potential. Anyone who visits can appreciate the pleasantly flat terrain and views of the bay, the East Bay, and San Bruno Mountain."
