The paved Cross Marin Trail bike path runs about three miles through the park, beginning near the entrance of the park. The trail is nearly level and follows the old Northern Pacific Coast Railroad right-of-way through Samuel P. Taylor and into the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

We just did the Cross Marin trail both directions leaving from Camp Taylor. It was beautiful! if you go west on the trail it will lead you to Jewell Trail which takes you up and to the top of a ridge where you can see Tomales Bay.

Beautiful trail. My husband and I took our bikes and enjoyed a lovely time together. The birds were singing to us as we rode easily along. It was the perfect trail for a short and sweet afternoon ride. It is great for beginners and those looking for a strolling pace.

I came across the trail when camping at Samuel P. Taylor State Park in September 2011. This relaxing trail was paved, shaded by stunning redwood groves, and parallel by a beautiful creek. Gorgeous sceneries and invigorating atmosphere, it is a great trail for jogging.
