Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline is a regional park, part of the East Bay Regional Park District system, located in northwestern Contra Costa County, California.


The park, in two sections, is located on the southern shoreline of the Carquinez Strait and eastern San Pablo Bay and in the adjacent hills, within the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area.

The western park section extends from Crockett and Crockett Hills Regional Park eastwards to Port Costa.

The larger eastern park section extends from expansive natural open spaces in the Crockett Hills, eastwards to the city of Martinez, the Martinez Regional Shoreline park, and the John Muir National Historic Site. Trails in the Crockett Hills have unobstructed views across Carquinez Strait to Suisun Bay, Benicia, and southern Solano County.

The 500 miles (800 km) long San Francisco Bay Trail passes through the park. Part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail also passes through the Crockett Hills area of the park.
