Pack a picnic, or just grab a good book and head up west of Skyline to Audrey’s Way, a spectacular place perched over the Pacific Ocean. A secret hangout for locals. There’s a viewing platform or plenty of hillside for a blanket and chair. Hiking trails too. Part of the good work of POST (nonprofit Peninsula Open Space Trust), who protects open space for the benefit of all. Let your spirit fly free!

Bike the Bay Bridge
Park on Treasure Island and bike around the entire island - site seeing into the past and future of this developing island. Then enjoy the easy slide down the Bay Bridge to Oakland (almost no peddling needed) and have a snack at Toll Plaza Beach. On the way back, the bridge “railroad grade” allows for a surprisingly easy pedal back to your car.
