Very low traffic, nice if you want to get away from it all. At times there are horses on the trails from the stables nearby. Lots of deer on the deer camp trail in December.

One of the best in Marin Open Space! Gradual switchbacks make the uphill and downhill very runner-friendly.

Warning: when the single track Big Tree trail hits a fire road on the most eastern part of the track, go right, uphill and follow the road to the top. This section (mile 3.25 to mile 4) is very steep. Most runners like me will have to walk this section.
