March 12th – Enviro-Sports, Romancing the Island 12K & 25K
Ferries travel to Angel Island on a regular basis from a number of locations including San Francisco and Tiburon. No private cars are allowed, or necessary, as the island is less than a square mile in size. A trolley travels the loop road around the edge of the island, taking an hour and offering interpretive tour headsets. Despite some steep inclines and being prohibited from some of the trails, bicycles are perhaps the best way to get around, and can be rented at the ferry terminal or brought on the ferry. Food and water, as well as books and maps, are available at the ferry terminal area. The abandoned buildings are mostly off-limits, though some have access. A museum at the immigration station is open on some weekends. Angel Island at night is a world unto itself.
Angel Island is a wonderful natural resource, rich with California history and perfect for a family outing, celebration, or a “day away” from urban life. The Island offers miles of hiking trails, including a wonderful trek to the top of Mt. Livermore (the Island’s highest point) where you’ll find spectacular panoramic views of the entire Bay Area. or a more leisurely day, stroll the paved Perimeter Road around the Island, taking in the views of Tiburon, San Francisco, the East Bay, and the San Rafael Bridge. On many days you’ll see all five Bay Area bridges.
