Finding and seeing some birds is reserved for the vigorous and fit. The rest of us can enjoy bird watching in easier circumstances.


The rich variety of accessible trails around the San Francisco Bay and nearby coast are listed and described in the publication A Wheelchair Rider's Guide San Francisco Bay and the Nearby Coast, published by The Coastal Conservancy in 2006, is available for free download at http://www.coastalconservancy.ca.gov/Publications/wheel.htm
