The route is mainly paved and goes by parks, along canals and along San Francisco Bay, offering a skyline view of San Francisco and the bay. This 11 km walk includes 3 km of picture postcard views of Alameda Island, Oakland, the Bay Bridge and San Francisco Bay. It's called Alameda Bay Farm because the area used to be an island of farmland, the principle crop being asparagus. But due to land fill it has become a peninsula and the only thing planted now are houses. On the way back you walk on a public walking path along a series of large lagoons that features beautiful up-scale homes, outstanding landscaping and waterfowl. Registration box is under the counter on left wall.
