Emeryville Peninsula, a curling finger jutting out into the bay, was one of the last major landfill projects on the bay. Its marinas and park are connected by two miles of paved Bay Trail. Powell Street leads to the peninsula’s tip, where the small lawns of Marina Park—screened by cypress and pine trees—face the bay.

As a designated site for the San Francisco Bay Water Trail, the marina has accessible launch facilities including an ADA gangway (with transition plates) that lead to a high-freeboard dock.

Trail Overview: One can enter the paved Bay Trail at multiple locations but if you start at the pier and head south alongside the marina it ends at a construction site (as of Aug 2020) in less than .5 mile. For a longer hike, start from the pier and head towards the bay. There are sweeping views of the Richmond–San Rafael Bridge, Mount Tamalpais, the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. Just past China Village restaurant (there’s no easy wheelchair access from the trail to the restaurant) the trail curves inland and parallels Powell St. for one-mile to Frontage Rd. From here turn left to continue on the Bay Trail as it skirts McLaughlin State Park along the bay for another 2-miles to University Ave. in Berkeley.
