Thank you for making Bay Day a success!

Thank you for making Bay Day a success!

Our 5th annual Bay Day was a huge success – because of you! We want to thank everyone who made this celebration possible.

This year over 1,200 people got out and explored the Bay during the Bay Day Trail challenge. Together, you covered more than 9,000 miles of trail and completed 360 activities.

From paddleboarding 13 miles to biking a 118-mile loop around the Bay, cleaning up our shorelines to enjoying weekend walks with family and friends – we were so inspired by the many ways you connected with our beautiful region. We hope you loved Bay Day as much as we did! 

While Bay Day may be over, you can head to to learn about more ways you can get involved and support our work. And remember to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to join us in celebrating and protecting San Francisco Bay year-round.

What inspired you to participate in the Bay Day Trail Challenge?

The Bay Trail is an integral part of my life as a resident of San Francisco. I often bike along the Embarcadero and I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve taken the trail across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito and beyond. I didn’t know until recently the extent of the Bay Trail and that it encompasses the entire perimeter of the San Francisco Bay. The Bay Day Trail Challenge inspired me to travel out further and explore sections of the Bay Trail that were new to me.

What was your favorite part of Bay Day and the Bay Day Trail Challenge?

I’m really glad I explored more of the Bay Trail and now I have a few more favorites which include the marshland near the Dumbarton Bridge and Coyote Hills Regional Park. Also, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has some nice views and it’s unique in that it’s the longest bridge across the Bay open to bike/pedestrian traffic.
