Benicia-Martinez Bridge Vista Point


The Benicia-Martinez Bridge Vista Point is on the hills where I-680 and I-780 intersect.



There is ample parking, paved paths, and picnic tables.

The train trestle crosses the Strait between the two I-680 spans.


The views include Contra Costa County and Mount Diablo.

At the top of the hill is a huge compass.


You can look out over the National Defense Reserve Fleet, popularly known as the Mothball Fleet.
