Baxter Creek

Creek Description

Baxter Creek is one of several creeks originating in an underground spring beneath El Cerrito's Mira Vista Golf Course. It runs through the Cities of El Cerrito and Richmond before entering into the San Francisco Bay at Stege Marsh. 41% of its 3 miles are natural, with no obvious reinforcements or concrete channel. Close to 60% of its watershed (the land that drains to the creek) is residential, while 65% is covered by impervious surfaces such as roads and houses.
