Hello and thank you for visiting Walking the Bay. My name is Corinne DeBra (pronounced Core-Inn' De-Bray' -- last name rhymes with "the bay").

Over two years (2009 - 2011), I finished a clockwise walk around San Francisco Bay, following the existing (and planned) San Francisco Bay Trail.

In September 2011, I celebrated with friends at Shoreline Park in Mountain View. And by December 2011 I was able to access and walk final segments of trail that had been closed in the East Bay when I first passed by, allowing me to reach 1,000-mile mark.

In December 2011, I started a second, slower round-the-bay walk, also following the ever-changing and expanding Bay Trail and connector trails. I'll finish this second walk in 2017. I expect to continue to explore other waterside trails in the world, as long as I'm able.

I also lead small group walks. Please contact me if you're interested in arranging a possible walk at corinne.debra(at)
