San Pablo Bay M11 Directions
Take I-80, Willow Street exit, which is one exit towards Sacramento past the 80/4 junction. Turn right at the bottom of the exit, and go through the town of Rodeo. As town ends and the road bends to the right (north), take a left and head two blocks south up a slight grade in a residential/commercial area, followed by a right turn over a railroad track overpass. Immediately after crossing the overpass, take a left (to the right is a Marina with a restaurant called the Waterfront), and head down to the gate.
PARKING. If launching from the ramp inside the marina, just park next to the ramp.
If launching from the park, the gate is bordered by a chain link fence on each side. To the water side is Joseph Fishing Resort is now gone. The other fence is separating the railroad tracks from the park. Large trains do come rumbling by. Parking at the gate itself is prohibited as is it a fire access. Park about 30 yards from the gate on the side of the road leading down to the gate. Vehicles are somewhat isolated from the park, and security seemed sketchy only due to the abandoned nature of the parking area, derelict boats, evidence of broken glass, etc. (This last trip someone first inquired of the value of the sails and equip., and then offered to sell us a sail for $50 that someone had 'forgotten there last year.' We were already set so we declined.) This is not the place to park a flashy vehicle.
