Car-free hiking & camping adventures in the Bay Area

With the rain almost on its way out and with little but gorgeous days ahead, we thought we would point out one resource for helping you take advantage of the more than 1 million acres of publicly accessible open space in the Bay Area this weekend. The best part? You don’t even have to drive. By visiting theĀ Transit & Trails website, you can plan to use public transit to travel to your next adventure, be it camping, hiking or cycling.

The map, shown above, was last updated in April of 2009 and features a list of transit-accessible hikes, details about which spaces are open to the public or have limited access, and routes for a number of different modes of transit, including but not limited to: BART, Caltrain, VTA, SamTrans, Tri Delta Transit, WestCAT, Wheels, and the County Connection. The map is free, and can be downloaded from the Bay Area Open Council website.
