I've compiled a few statistics from my run/hike on the Bay Circuit Trail.  I don't have the best memory but I think they're fairly accurate.

Paved roads and bike paths: 96 miles or 42%. More road walking on the southern half vs the northern half.
Miles hiked: 128 or 55%.
Miles run: 103 or 45%.
Longest hike: 19 miles. (last day on trail)
Longest run: 30 miles. Good training run for the Damn Wakely Dam Ultra.

Miles driven to and from trail: far too many!
Number of falls: Less than usual :)
