Okay, okay, so it’s not exactly a hiking trail, but definitely more of a place for everyone, including kids! Park 20 runners enjoy a jog along the gorgeous Bay Trail, race up the soaring staircase, and finish the day with a picnic at Seal Point’s fully equipped neighbor, Ryder Park. This Peninsula gem is for everyone, even doggies.
