Best Run

Along the Jack London Square Waterfront

Lake Merritt is popular for a reason, but this is the literal road less traveled: a mile or so of well-paved, off-street bike and running path, running along the marina from the ferry station to Estuary Park. The loop is a great quick run, or you can continue along the Bay Trail in either direction for as long as you want. Either way, start at the east end, which'll take you past soccer games and sailboats and through Jack London Square, all with a perfect view of the Port of Oakland's famed cranes. Ben and Jerry's is right there too, just sayin'.
