‘The Rock’ Alcatraz Island San Francisco, California
A few miles north is Angel Island, a lushly forested state park with a rich history as an immigration centre. From 1910 until 1940, Angel Island was the Ellis Island of the West, processing thousands of immigrants annually, of whom 97 per cent came from China. Today, the island’s 12 miles of roads and trails invite hikers and bikers to explore forests and the summit of Mount Livermore, with its 360-degree panorama of San Francisco, Marin County, and the East Bay.
