Boating, boardsailing, birding at new Shoreline Park on the south bay.
With a boat ramp and two docks, the 50-acre salt-water lake is a boon to boardsailors and small-boat skippers. Now through October, the ramp is open 7 to 6:30 ($3 per boat), with sailing until 7:30. Everyone on the lake must wear a flotation device; swimming is not allowed. Hours may change; call (415) 961-7965.
Migrating shorebirds are now returning to Shoreline from their northern summer homes. Five miles of trails get you close. Best viewing spots are the Mountain View Slough and tidal marsh, the Stevens Creek tidal marsh, and the trail connecting them. all but Stevens Creek are a short walk from the lake parking lot.
To reach Shoreline, exit north on Stierlin Road from the Bayshore; drive 1 mile to the park gatehouse, then another mile to the parking lot for the boating lake. You can also walk or bike into the park from the north end of San Antonio Road.
