Grizzly Island Wildlife Area
With 84,000 acres of land, bays and sloughs, the Suisun Marsh is the largest contiguous estuarine marsh in the United States. The Grizzly Island Complex occupies about 15,300 acres of this prime wildlife habitat. The complex is a patchwork of 10 distinct land parcels, many of which are not connected and are surrounded by private land. They offer a variety of recreation opportunities.
The Grizzly Island Complex combines natural tidal wetlands and artificially diked marshes. Each habitat attracts a special kind of wildlife.
Take Interstate 80, north from San Francisco, south from Sacramento. Take Highway 12 off-ramp east toward Rio Vista. Turn onto Grizzly Island Road at the stoplight at Sunset Shopping Center.

Rockville Hills Regional Park
2149 Rockville Road
Fairfield, CA 94534 707-428-7614
The 633-acre Rockville Hills Regional Park offers a variety of hiking terrain. Climb gently through these volcanic rock hills to a remote, grassy valley with a splendid stand of blue oaks. On the descent, there are views of Mount Diablo, Elkhorn Peak and the Twin Sisters. Most trees in the park are deciduous, so on a winter day these trails can be sunny, yet in the summer the forest offers welcome shade. Trails are open to cyclists and hikers, but dogs must be on a leash. Horses are not permitted.
