Singletrack that offers expansive views of West Marin and San Francisco. You can either start the trail near Four Corners in Mill Valley along Panaramic Highway and descend to Muir Woods or vice versa. Note: This trail has been converted from a fireroad to a singletrack. Great single track that sees a lot of mixed usage. Mostly mountain bikers, some hikers, and a few horse riders as well since the trail ends at a horse stable in Muir Beach. Nothing but smiles and people enjoying the beautiful scenery. Descending from Four Corners, it begins as a smooth single track and slowly becomes slightly more rocky. Towards the end of the trail, there are many tight switch-backs, water bars (read: pay attention if you're on a bike). Muir Beach is also a short .5 from there and the Zen Gardens are right around the corner. Miwok Trail, Middle Green Gulch, and the Coastal Trail are all easily found from this trail.

We've driven past this trailhead for years and never stopped to check it out, until 2 weeks ago. Glorious Fall day with clear skies, not very hot, perfect for hiking! Made it almost all the way to Muir Beach before we decided to head back and get lunch in Mill Valley. Saw a garter snake sunning on the trail, always a plus to get some wildlife viewing!

Great hike along the ridge overlooking wood groves. Option to continue to Muir beach at the end, easy parking on panoramic highway

Great hike. Beautiful scenery. Unfortunately, we missed the sign to take the complete Dias Ridge trail and ended on a road. We only missed a half mile of the 6.1 distance, and did not see the water due to fog. We met some seasoned hikers to the area and they gave us several alternatives to try next time. We enjoyed the beautiful wild flowers and cool climate. THERE IS POISON OAK! We are treating with Technu and hoping for the best. I will be back to see this entire path another time for sure.
