Guide to San Francisco Bay Area Creeks

Cerrito Creek Watershed

The Cerrito Creek Watershed includes:
Middle Creek

Cerrito Creek, flowing from a deep ravine, was the largest of a number of creeks draining into a large salt marsh between Albany Hill and Point Isabel west of today's San Pablo Avenue. On its banks was an Ohlone Village.
Blackberry Creek used to be a tributary of Cerrito Creek. A stormdrain now captures the flows of Blackberry Creek and upper Marin Creek, discharging them from an outfall into the marsh north of Golden Gate Fields.aret
