San Francisco: North

Tiburon & Belvedere Waterfront

Creative Commons: Brocken Inaglory

Across the bay from San Francisco and east of Suasalito, the Tiburon/Belvedere area offers some attractive waterfront running opportunities. Our favorite run is a 4-mile out and back waterfront route in Tiburon. Start at Beach Rd. near Belvedere Park, and run east along the water to the Tiburon Ferry Terminal (ferries to Angle Island, San Francisco). Continue east, through lovely Shoreline Park and then on Paradide Dr. to Lyford’s Stone Tower, featuring great views. Bear right on Mar E. St. to the end, which involves a small climb. There are nice homes here and occasional water views. You could also start this run at Tiburon Ferry

Longer Run:  Add the 3-mile loop around Belvedere Island. It’s fairly hilly, and mixes nice homes and water views on a relatively quiet road. Also enjoy the quieter residential streets in the hills above Tiburon harbor. Note Paradise Dr. is narrow and has no shoulder.

Essentials
  • Up to 5 miles (8 km) one-way; Belvedere Island loop adds 3-miles
  • 135 feet (41m); Belvedere Island loop is 220 feet (67m)
  • Beach Rd.
  • Tiburon can be accessed by ferry from San Francisco
