Out With The Old ~ In With The New | A Walk Across The New Bay Bridge

March 23, 2014
Emeryville, CA
Hikers Walkers: Cathy, Laura
Distance: 8.5 miles
Elevation Gain: 217 ft.

FYI: There are portable bathrooms just before you reach the toll plaza of the bridge, and they even have pump sinks with soap, to wash your hands. :)

Walking under the MacArthur Maze (I-80/I-580/I-880).

Yeah, not the best place for a rest stop - next to the wastewater treatment plant - stinky!

Our favorite flower!! I'm lucky enough to have these in my yard. :)

 Notice all the hard hats in the windows.

Well, that explains all the hard hats...

The shipping container cranes look like futuristic - prehistoric creatures, don't they?

The new Bay Bridge peaking over the old..

The old, and the new, side by side.

The view behind us.

A seal!

There are three lanes on the new pedestrian/bike path. The left for pedestrians, and two for bikes.

Sad to see the "old" go.

A ball! Maybe this ball belongs to the seal we saw. ;)

Once the old bridge is torn down, the bike/pedestrian path will continue on to Yerba Buena Island.

No worries here! We have no desire to trespass..

These birds were busily building their nests on the old bridge. :(

How cute is this little guy?

Bay Bridge Trail
We parked at Ikea - the trailhead is right across the street. It's about two and a half miles before you reach the bridge.
