Yippee, I crossed into Redwood City this evening...just over the city line, according to the sign on the side of East Bayshore Road. The map (above) indicated an, as yet, undeveloped area (gray dotted line) for a possible trail in the future. I decided to walk down Haven and then East Bayshore, as close to the dotted line as possible, a route that ran parallel to Highway 101. I would not recommend walking this route, as most of this stretch lacks sidewalks. At some points I was forced to walk around parked cars, into the street with cars passing closeby. This was largely a walk through an industrial park and frontage road, with no views of, or access to, the Bay.
Wildlife Sightings: 1 egret hiding in the shadows; the sound of two birds calling to each other in trees (song bird species unknown, as I couldn't see the birds); 6 ducks, 2 feral cats.
