From the Novato Valley, this oak-studded mountain rises 1,558 feet to a summit which offers breathtaking views of the entire Bay Area. Along the way, visitors pass through lush grasslands and impressive forests that contain some of the finest (and oldest) specimens of oak and bay trees in Marin. From the gate off of San Andreas Dr, take the Michako trail to the San Carlos Fire Rd. Then climb past hidden lake on Cobbleston Trail to the Deer Camp Fire Rd. Take this to the summit at 1,558 ft. Return via the same route.

I've hiked the trail a few times and now will post these 4.5 stars. I've only hiked the full 5.23 mile loop to the top and not the tribs, but have a love/hate relationship going up the very rocky Old Ouarry Trail segment. Hot and dry during the summer, only slightly more forgiving in January. Cows with plenty of water runoff from the rains. Enjoy!!
