Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve


The Visitor's Center at Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve has displays about Mare Island's past.


The trail is on paved road, and winds around to the highest point on Mare Island (Mare Island Hill) at close to 300 feet.


The Mare Island Naval Cemetery is only a short walk from the Visitor's Center.


A view across the Mare Island Strait to Vallejo.


You can see buildings from the former Mare Island Naval Shipyard.

A gorgeous sunset.


From time to time, the Preserve hosts a "Mare Island Aglow" nighttime walk. The "Spirit Ship" is a sculpture commissioned at the time of the closing of the naval shipyard. It sits atop Mare Island Hill, and it's all "aglow" in this photo.
