A large part of the scenic drive is open to cars, with the exception of the middle section; the George Miller Regional Trail is now open after a 30 year closure to hikers, cyclists, and equestrians! It is paved for the entire length and provides stunning views the strait. The San Francisco Bay Trail and Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail both funnel along the newly designated path.
