Two weeks ago, I made the case for Redwood City’s Path of History Walking Tour as an easy but interesting walk within Redwood City. Another that I often recommend is the trail that runs through the Bair Island Wildlife Refuge.

That gravel trail is well groomed, wide and flat. From it you can see plenty of birds, insects and native plants, and you’ll get some nice views of Smith Slough and the occasional kayak. Plus, because Bair Island sits directly beneath the San Carlos Airport flight path, those who admire planes can enjoy the sight of those as well. The planes are usually coming in to land and nearly always have their engines throttled back to idle, however, so they aren’t really a distraction.
