Tips

  • The entire Angel Island State Park has been reopened, including all trails and camping, after the massive October 2008 wildfire. Visitors are encouraged to stay out of the burned area because there are still hazards. Additional information may be obtained by calling the Ranger Station at (415) 435-5390.
  • 90-minute docent-led tours of the Immigration Station are given twice daily Wednesday through Sunday. Reservations are required; call (415) 435-3522, or visit the their website.
  • Another fine docent-led walk is called the 'Angel Island Wildflower Ramble,' which occurs every Sunday. For reservations call (415) 435-3522. The tour follows a wide array of footpaths all the way to the summit, then back to Ayala Cove in a circuitous loop.
  • Personal bicycles may be brought to the island on the ferry and used on designated roads. Bikes and Segways can also be rented in Ayala Cove. Dogs are not allowed. Roller skates and skateboards are prohibited. No wood fires are allowed but there are designated barbecue and picnic areas available for walk-in use. A few campsites are also available for reservation. Call the Ranger Station at (415) 435-5390 for more information on camping permits.
  • Hiking trails, fire roads, and the Perimeter Road provide easy access to the whole island, including many breathtaking views and almost all the historic sites. Tours are available at some of the historic sites, especially on weekend days during the high season from April to October.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
