Bay Area Ridge Trail: Benicia-Martinez Bridge and Martinez City Streets
- Owned By
Crossing one of the major Bay Area bridges is a not-to-be missed experience. This segment, a section of the Carquinez Strait Scenic Loop Trail, is especially fun as a bike ride because it is a paved route. Starting in Benicia, you have an opportunity to take a side trip and explore the historic Benicia Arsenal. Cross the Carquinez Strait from Solano County into Contra Costa County and see the maritime activity below. Be prepared for high winds on the bridge.
