We stopped here for a walk and to view the area. The views of the Ocean are excellent, walking places well maintained. This is well worth the stop.

Beautiful area, great for a picnic or even a walk. Pet friendly and there are plenty of places to walk if you are trying to escape from the outside world.

This is a great place to catch a sunset, have a cookout or just hang out and people watch! We go here at least a few times a year.

I have lived in the East Bay my entire life. Colt State Park, must be a staple in your visit here. Gorgeous ocean side paths, along with wooded trails. Walk/ drive/ bike through! Take your dog for a walk or run, they'll appreciate it too!
