Benicia Waterfront Walk

  • This location is shown only to members

We'll walk from our meeting point at the corner of Second Street and East E Street around the Benicia Marina, then out to the fishing pier at the end of First Street, then out along streets close to the waterfront to the Ninth Street Park, then back along the same route.

We can stop for coffee afterwards at The Rellik Tavern on 1st Street. They make a great cup of coffee and they have comfy couches.

Bathrooms are available at the Ninth Street Park and at the coffee shop.

Parking is free.

The route has some hills and is mostly paved. A good portion of the walk will be on city streets or sidewalks.

It should take about 1 1/2 hours and the distance is about 4 1/2 to 5 miles.

PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who walks on a regular basis at a brisk pace should not have any difficulty.

    How was Benicia? One of my favorite walks.
    Sammie is fine ribber gloves, vinegar & shampoo did the trick. As for the carpet ???? Putting vinegar in the carpet machine next.
    Wish me luck.

      Back home we always used tomato juice, but that might not be too great on carpet! Check Whole Foods -- they have tons of stuff for that. Or maybe a few gallons of FeBreeze...

      You'll miss the opportunity to help me put the new hood on my car after the walk.

    Are well behaved dogs okay to bring or no?

      I would thinks so. I always look up pictures of these areas before I go walking and on one of the Benicia Waterfront sites there's a picture of a sign that says "Dogs allowed off-leash in beach area only", or maybe it was not -- but either way it looks like yes, dogs are allowed but I guess that's up to the group leaders?
