Skaggs Island, Skaggs Island Road, Highway 37, Sonoma

The tour includes a 7-mile loop with a few optional spur trails of 0.3 and 0.5 miles. Great for adults and children. You might see deer, fox, coyote, jack rabbit, turkey, great horned owl, white-tailed kite, & other raptors.

You can do self tour by following the route maps for a self-guided ride will be available at the check in tent located near the south gate (off Highway 37).

Bring hat, dress in layers, water, picnic lunch, binoculars, camera, sunscreen. Portable toilets will be onsite.

Biking surface is mostly paved with some gravel sections; Skaggs Island is very flat (no hills). Mountain bikes, road bikes, and cruisers should do fine.

Directions:  Skaggs Island Road is located at the flashing yellow light on Highway 37 approximately 5.5 miles west of Mare Island and 3.9 miles East of Sears Point (CA-121).  It is accessible from either direction on Highway 37, however, use caution when turning on to Skaggs Island Road or returning onto Highway 37.  You will be directed where to park. We will also have the north gate unlocked (but closed) for those who want to ride in from Ramal Road. See Map.
