Connecting Fisherman’s Wharf to Crissy Field, the Bay Trail at the Marina is one of the most popular locations in San Francisco, with abundant activity and a beautiful backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge. This mixed-use bicycle and pedestrian path starts at Fort Mason and, for three blocks between Scott and Baker Streets, also includes vehicle parking on this path. Join our efforts in advocating for a clear and open Marina Bay Trail through parking relocation.
Since 2010, the City has been working to improve the Marina, with a community planning process to design the Bay Trail between Scott and Baker Streets with the goal of providing “a high quality bicycle, pedestrian and general visitor experience.” The path was repaved in Spring 2013 after continuous delays in this process, but it still awaits the final design. Through the community planning process, the SF Bicycle Coalition has been advocating to move the parking to a convenient location for visitors and boat owners, creating a beautiful bicycle and pedestrian path for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Marina Bay Trail
Signed into state law in 1987, the San Francisco Bay Trail is a continuous biking, walking and recreation path circling the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays along the shoreline. Adding up to 500 miles in length, 330 miles of the Bay Trail have so far been aligned and constructed.
In San Francisco, a large part of our waterfront from Candlestick to the Golden Gate Bridge is part of the Bay Trail. Through Connecting the City, the SF Bicycle Coalition continues to work to complete our city’s portion of the Bay Trail and close the gaps in the bicycle network.
