Regular readers of my blog may have been asking themselves why there has not been any reference to the Benicia State Recreation Area (aka Beaver Run) since my blog of March 19, 2010, before we even moved in. I have only been to Beaver Run once before today. That was in 2010 when The Dot and I rode bikes there. But today The Hub and I decided to drive there and take a walk. The entrance is about two miles from Wellington, so we could technically have walked it. But we didn't. And it's a good thing, because the best part of the park is about 2.3 miles from the entrance.
There were some little water ways that seem like they would be perfect beaver habitats. But we didn't see a single beaver.
Here is a map of the area.
We started off the map at the top right corner, to the right of where you see highway 780. We parked on West K and walked up the path and into the park. Then we looped up where it goes off the map in the top left corner and back onto the map and down to the point, where the restrooms are and you can see Dillon Point. It was 2.3 miles from the start of the park to where we turned around. I think we'll have to go back more often than every four years if we want to see a beaver. I'll keep you posted.
