Nature Reclaiming its Place

Alviso - San Jose, California
Human & Natural History
Moderate Hike
4.5 Miles
120 Mins
Take a walk through thousands of years of history to see what the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay once looked like and how it’s evolved over the years. Thanks to the restoration of these old salt ponds, there are now more than 15,000 acres here that serve as homes for billions of animals. The California State Coastal Conservancy led this restoration project and is the largest restoration program ever attempted in an urban area. Enjoy your escape into nature and happy trails!
