trail locations for San Rafael, California

It was beautiful and the weather was nice. There are a lot of mountain bike riders but they all watched out for us hikers.

Mostly fire road and steep but it's close to home and a good workout with some good bay and Novato views.

Once at the peak, you'll experience great views and have the option to go down numerous offshoot trails.

Dog friendly, wide trails with tremendous panoramic views. Trail is showing major signs of our drought with foxtails lining the way. Parking is on a residential street.

This place sucks! $3 to hike? It's only 3, but really? Poorly planned, poorly maintained.

Great hike. Go clockwise for shade on the way up. Our only issue was bringing older parents. This trail is really steep so not for the out of shape.

Nice clean path and shady

Great tam views and panoramic at points. At the very top, look for stone art.

During the week when the park isn't as crowded, this is a fantastic place for trail running. Many trails, nice breezes on hot days, and beautiful views.

I love the eucalyptus grove on the top of the ridge, just wish the trail was easier to access from terra Linda.

This is on the shoreline trail in China camp. Great trail for running or hiking and this portion is an easy walk and picnic area good for kids.

I come here often and it's a good local hiking trail, but some of the paths need clearing and become slippery or rocky.

Hiked this trail last fall and it was a great hike. one thing I realized was this was very popular with mountain bikers and they would come around corners pretty fast. So you have to keep an ear out and listen for oncoming traffic. the riders from behind typically yell out to let you know they're behind you. Great scenic views and photo ops.
