From the parking lot at the lake, walk South to cross the Permanente Creek via the footbridge. Continue along the trail Southeast as it goes around the edge of a small pond and comes to border a large salt evaporation pond. This Bay Trail will dip abruptly (there is a cautionary sign here) and turn West as it approaches Stevens Creek Trail and Crittenden Marsh to the Southwest. At the junction with Stevens Creek Trail, there are benches, a trash can, and a water fountain. Turn back the way you came.
