Captain Pedro Fages Trail
Fages, Commandante at Monterey, vainly looked for a way across San
Francisco Bay. With Juan Crespí, Franciscan missionary, 14 soldiers, a muleteer,
and an Indian servant, he trekked along Carquinez Strait, thence eastward nearly
to Antioch. Turning back, these first white men to explore what became
Contra Costa County, passed this point and camped near Danville March 31, 1772.
