Perfect for beginners. A bit muddy after the rain, give it a week to dry out. Beautiful views. Pleasant random wild turkey encounters.

Great local hike. Lots of salamanders along the way. My dogs enjoyed it and we rarely ran into people. Nice views at the top and beautiful redwoods along the way.

Enjoyed this nice little hike in the hills near Novato. Easy parking and only ran into a few other hikers. Gradual climb to the top with some great views of the bay and surrounding hills. Lots of bugs and horse turds so watch your steps.

Beautiful views. Easy-to-follow walking trail. Goes in a nice 2-mile loop. 3/4 in direct sun, so lather on sunscreen.

Great hike! Great views saw 3 people the whole time. I will be back.

Lovely trail, lots of water and birds to look at. We went up de borba trail which gave some nice views. Hawks circling and crying, woodpecker and we passed and were passed by NO OTHER PEOPLE.

Great Hike - TrailHead on the left (next to a house) right before you get to a dirt road - redwoods are nice (not a ton and not very large) but the views walking up are real nice. Ton of Horse stuff - pretty narrow trail and very little direct sun. We were first people on the trail at around 730 only saw one other person. Great workout and really enjoyed it

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.

Great local hike! Beautiful, views, lots of shade!
