Benicia offers an abundance of opportunities to enjoy the water, whether in it or having fun beside it. We also offer extensive trail and pathways for hiking, biking and enjoying our gorgeous waterfront sunsets.


Benicia state recreation area

Consisting of 438 acres with 2.5 miles of paths for cyclists, runners, walkers, equestrians and roller skaters. The trails roll through the marshy, grassy hillsides and rocky beaches along the narrowest portion of the Carquinez Strait. 


bay ridge trail

The trail follows the Carquinez strait waterfront through Benicia and Vallejo. You'll find mostly level trails featuring sidewalks, paved and unpaved trails and paths. This is part of a project to build 500 miles of trail through 47 cities. It's a true adventure.
