From Alcatraz Island there are breathtaking views of San Francisco. But you don’t often see the back view from Alcatraz of beautiful Angel Island–a park filled with activity for San Francisco residents and tourists.
Angel Island is a California State Park and can be accessed by private boat or public ferry. Here there are trails for hiking, biking, and even segway rentals; camping, kayaking and other activities too. More info here.
It’s an odd feeling to stand where prisoners of the former federal penitentiary stood…and completely liberating to get on the boat and leave when you please.
