Explore this easy loop in the Olompali State Historic Park. Hike through grasslnd and oak woodland. This loop connects the Miwok and Lower Mt. Burdell trails. Olompali comes from Coast Miwok words meaning southern and village or people. Researchers believe that Olompali was one of the largest villages in what is now Marin County.
I took the trail up to where it meets with Mt Burdell. Lots is switch backs make it doable, but then you feel like the scenery is all the same. Hearty walk up, but and easy 5 mile jog back down.
Nice easy hike if you have small children. Village in the beginning has lots to see. The trail is not very scenic, but it's easy and the entire family can enjoy it.
A nice easy walk in a pretty park with lots of history. You can also extend your hike to the top of Burdell for some great views.
