  • Belvedere Tiburon, California

    Belvedere Tiburon in California offers some of the best trails and outdoor activities. A must-visit is the Old St. Hilary’s Open Space Preserve, a scenic hiking trail that offers panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay. The trail is moderate in difficulty and features unique rock formations and a variety of wildflowers. Another top outdoor adventure is the Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve, a more challenging hike that rewards with views of the Tiburon Peninsula and Richardson Bay. The Tiburon Linear Park is a great spot for a leisurely stroll or bike ride, with views of the water and nearby Angel Island. For water activities, head to Paradise Beach Park for a day of fishing or picnicking by the water. These are just a few of the scenic outdoor attractions in and near Belvedere Tiburon.
