Really nice trail. Parking is easy and you may even run into a cow or two on the trail :) Very easy hike.

Not dog friendly. Drove out here to find a sign that says no dogs. Super disappointed as it looked really nice.

This was a fun and pretty little trail. We did this mistakenly as a warm up for the Tomales Point Trail which is located farther NW from here. Lots of Holsteins grazing on lush green grass with big boulders nestled among them. Go all the way to the Bay and it gets real marshy, especially in winter time. Part of the path at the Bay was underwater and real sloshy. The hills are quite enchanting though, and I can't wait to see what it looks like with the wildflowers in spring!

Fun Fact: The trail is right on the San Andreas Fault. The fault is the reason why the Tomales Bay exists and is the shape that it is. Over thousands of years a part of the fault filled with sea water creating the Tomales Bay in Northern California.
