Vallejo-Benicia Buffer Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Take this varied trip along the ridgeline greenbelt between Vallejo and Benicia. Begin on a short round-trip to a rocky ridge, and return to the rolling green lawns and shady picnic areas of Blue Rock Springs Park to follow a paved path or bike lane to the Buffer Trail. Meander through the open space easement, up and down hilly grasslands, toward Benicia State Recreation Area. Little shade protects you from the hot summer sun on this unpaved trail, which gains 300 feet and loses 540 feet; the ridge may be windy or foggy."
--Jean Rusmore, Bay Area Ridge Trail: The Official Guide for Hikers, Mountain Bikers and Equestrians (Wilderness Press).
"Take a trip through Mexican and early California history on two routes that follow the Carquinez Strait waterfront through the thriving towns of Benicia and Vallejo. Enjoy brisk breezes and occasional fog as you watch the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers funnel into San Francisco Bay. This route travels mostly level trails, including sidewalks, paved and unpaved trails, and foot paths."
