A great hike

Isle miles: Angel Island State Park is a car-free gem. Go on an easy bike and hike adventure starting from Ayala Cove, where regular ferries from San Francisco and Tiburon dock.

It’s also where you'll find the unmarked spur trail to off-the-radar Perles Beach, a south-facing hidden beauty. [Visit to find out more about getting outdoors in Northern California]
