Sunnyvale Baylands County Park

The park has 105 acres of protected seasonal wetlands with dirt trails along the marshes for hiking. At the east end of the park, the road is closed to vehicles and the road continues for biking and walking.  If you walk far enough, you will see a dirt path that leads to more wetland and many more miles of dirt trails that take you by the bay.  There are many parking lots and restrooms throughout the park. There are two huge pond complexes around Moffett channel that are perfect for birdwatching.

This park has all flat dirt trails with lots of birds to watch while you are bicycling. There is an approximately 30 minute loop out in the bay. Watch out in the winter as the trail gets very muddy after a rainy day. I have never noticed anyone at the kiosk during the week to collect parking or entrance fees.
