China Camp and Marin Islands Reserve Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The convoluted shoreline of this 1,500-acre park stretches 3 miles along rocky bluffs backed by rolling hills of thickly forested oak woodland, offering panoramic views of San Pablo Bay and the East Bay hills.
This series of points and small coves fringed with salt marsh creates great feeding grounds for the nearby heron and egret rookeries on Marin Islands Reserve, and narrow, winding channels give kayakers access to the marsh at high tide. Essentially undeveloped, the area retains much of the character (as well as several original structures) from the days when it was a Chinese fishing village. For a historical perspective, stop by the small museum near the launch beach."
