Bay Day Trail Challenge

Coming Soon

The Bay is a place for everyone and a vibrant source of fun and adventure, ready to be explored.

From October 1 Р31, we invite you to connect, explore, and discover the San Francisco Bay Trail and help celebrate Bay Day.  You can enjoy the outdoors and #RecreateResponsibly during the pandemic to maintain your physical and mental well-being.

There are two ways you can participate in the Bay Day Trail Challenge. Choose the one that works best for you and yours.

Challenge Inspiration

Six potential ways to explore the Bay this Bay Day


As you explore the Bay Trail, please follow these guidelines to ensure a safe, healthy, and inclusive trail experience for all.

  • Know before you go: Check the status of the place you want to visit. If it is closed, don’t go. If it’s crowded, have a backup plan.
  • Practice physical distancing: Keep your group size small. Be prepared to cover your nose and mouth and give others space. If you don’t feel well, stay home.
  • Plan ahead: Prepare for facilities to be closed, pack lunch, and bring essentials like hand sanitizer and a face covering.
  • Explore locally: Limit long-distance travel and make use of local parks, trails, and public spaces. Be mindful of your impact on the communities you visit.
  • Leave no trace: Respect public lands and waters, as well as Native and local communities. Take all your garbage with you.
  • Build an inclusive outdoors: Be an active part of making the outdoors safe and welcoming for all identities and abilities.
