Myrna Hayes stands at the top of the Mare Island hill that makes up part of the 200-acre regional park that she helped establish. The hilltop offers views of seven Bay Area counties on a clear day.

Discover Solano Spring 2014: Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve

By From page DIS46 | March 31, 2014

Visitors to the preserve at Mare Island in Vallejo can take in both history and nature.

A trail leads to the top of a 284-foot hill overlooking San Pablo Bay, with distant views of Mount Tamalpais, Mount Diablo and Mount St. Helena. Those who don’t want to hike can still see Mare Island cemetery and century-old stone buildings at the old ammunition depot left over from the island’s long history as a naval shipyard.

Location: Railroad Avenue at southern tip of Mare Island

    One of the best parts of visiting the preserve is spending some time in the gracious, welcoming presence of Myrna Hayes. The hikes and teas are nice side benefits.
