Livermore hikers can view the Golden Gate, Bay, Richmond/San Rafael, San Mateo and the Dumbarton bridges.

Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve
The Preserve is a tiny parcel tucked into a canyon along a quiet stretch of Paradise Drive. One short 0.7 mi loop takes a hiker through dark forests of California bay and fern, exposed stretches of chaparral, and small pockets of grassland. Although it's small, the preserve is a great choice for a quick walk, or a leisurely wildflower hike. You could combine a springtime visit to Tiburon Uplands with treks at nearby Old St. Hilary's and Ring Mountain Open Space Preserves, for a day of wildflower hunting on the Tiburon peninsula.
A quarter-mile of waterfront grass and walking/bike paths with amazing views of San Francisco, Angel Island, and boats on the bay.

The Marine Mammal Center is open for public visitation from 10 am to 4 pm daily. We are closed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day.
