Vallejo is located on the east shores of San Pablo Bay at the south end of the Napa River in Central California. It is an hours drive north of Oakland and 26 miles directly northeast of San Francisco. It is home to the Mare Island Naval Complex and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Benicia is southeast of Vallejo on the Carquinez Strait. American Canyon is a residential community located 5 miles to the north. Many tourists travel through this area on their way to Napa Valley, which is 15 miles north of Vallejo. Just west of American Canyon is the delta for the Napa River, known as the Napa-Sonoma Marshes Wildlife Area.

There are a number of recreational trails in the Vallejo area for commuting, cycling, walking, running and viewing nature.

There is also a section of the Bay Trail system that crosses the Interstate 680 Bridge over Carquinez Strait to the City of Concord.

Several sections of the San Francisco Bay Trail, or Bay Trail, travel through Vallejo and American Canyon and also are in Benicia.

On the south end of Vallejo, there is a bike path along Carquinez Bridge that crosses the Carquinez Strait from the City of Rodeo north to Vallejo.

This section starts at Rose Drive and Columbus Parkway. The trail follows alongside Rose Drive over the interstate then heads south just after Dillon Point Road at the Benicia State Recreation Area. It then heads south on a pvaed path quite a distance from the I-780 to a parking area at the end of Military Way.
