Activity Overview

The Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve is a 1,940 acre preserve that has managed to hold off against the development that has eaten up the majority of San Francisco Bay. As such it provides a beautiful tract of land to nature lovers and just about anyone who wants to get away from the city. It is popular with walkers and bird-watchers.
