Document Description
The project under consideration is the San Francisco Bay Trail: Pinole Shores to Bayfront Park Project. The San Francisco Bay Trail is a non-motorized recreational corridor proposed to encircle San Francisco and San Pablo Bays with a continuous 500-mile network of bicycling and hiking trails. The corridor will connect the shoreline of all nine bay area counties, link 47 cities and eventually cross all the major toll bridges in the region. Approximately 290 miles of the alignment have been completed. A key segment of the Bay Trail exists along the San Pablo Bay Shoreline within the City of Pinole between Pinole Shores and Bayfront Park. The Park District would construct a section of the San Francisco Bay Trail in Pinole between Pinole Shores and Bayfront Park, a distance of approximately 0.5 mile. The proposed project would extend an existing Class I non-motorized, paved trail from a hillside bluff across from Hazel Lane in Pinole Shores to the east, traverse down the bluff face, then cross over the UPRR tracks to connect to an existing path in Bayfront Park. The alignment would travel between the UPRR and BNSF railroad tracks for approximately 1,500 ft, then sweep downhill to the north and east on a 140-ft radius curve with an elevated structure of approximately 1,100 ft in length to cross over the UPRR tracks. The last segment of the trail would consist of a 72-ft radius curve, traversing wetlands and marsh lands of San Pablo Bay, to connect with the existing path in Bayfront Park. Construction of the proposed trail alignment would require earthwork, retaining walls, and installation of a grade separated bridge over the railroad tracks. The proposed trail alignment is located along the San Pablo Bay shoreline in Pinole.
