Angel Island, the former Ellis Island of the West, is today a beautiful, rugged land crisscrossed with hiking and biking trails. Take the 12-minute ferry from Tiburon then head out on foot or rent a bike (or electric bike) with the Angel Island Company. Trails around the island vary from easy to challenging and many pass by fascinating remnants of the island’s history. Stay for the day or up the ante with an overnight backpacking trip to one of the island’s romantic waterfront campsites.
