Corte Madera, California Map

Pretty easy hike with a few moderate parts. Unbelievable views with a couple cool boulders throughout. Would definitely do again with the whole family!

Dog friendly! Excellently challenging hike.

Beautiful views of the bay. Completely exposed, so don’t go on a hot day. Conversely, it can be chilly on when windy.

Short little hike with no shade. Small amount of bugs. Some of the signs don't follow the guided app trail, don't worry if you follow one over the other since they both end you in the same place. Slight up hill most of the way except for the last loop which is a moderate uphill and moderate downhill. A bit rocky but nothing terrible. Some nice views of the water and city. There is a residency near by so you might hear noise for a small portion of it (we hear construction). Small to moderate foot traffic.

Gorgeous trail. It is moderate as there is a lot of rocks and consistently uphill for the first mile of the loop. Gorgeous views as you climb up. My 5 and 7 year old enjoyed it.

There is very limited parking at the beginning of this trail, and the trail head is a little difficult to spot. I was distracted by the dumped car, missed the trail head and continued happily down the fire road until we reconnected with the trail. Great views, and interesting variations in landscape.

This is a pretty hike with some magical views; however, it is not easy as classified. There are some very steep scrabbly sections that require a level of fitness to ascend and much care to descend.

In total the loop + huckleberry trail to access the loop is 7km. Very nice walk full of birds to discover. The slopes are actually steep provide water in good weather.

An excellent place to see a wide variety of wildflowers. Nice views of San Francisco/Richmond/Marin County/the Bay.

Very muddy in spots with the recent rain, but the views are worth it.

Saw a snake, two deer and some lizards in the first few minutes!

Hiked with a four year old. Great hike for kids!

Amazing views but incredibly incredibly muddy in February

washed out

This trail was extremely MUDDY the first weekend in February. So muddy that I fell three times. Even though the trail itself has a very gentle incline and was not difficult at all (I’d rate it as easy to moderate), DON’T attempt this trail in barefoot trail runners or, god forbid, street clothes. I left my hiking boots at home because it was an “easy” trail, but my trail runners just didn’t cut it in all the mud. I didn’t have enough traction and I slipped and skidded nearly a dozen times and fell down three times. The mud was several inches deep in many spots, and there was a constant stream of water trickling down most of the trail. I had to go very SLOWLY and take tiny little steps most of the way, to try not to fall. The fire roads were in much better condition, but still a bit washed out in parts. It was very WINDY at the top of the mountain, so hang onto your stuff. The top has amazing 360 degree views though. It’s definitely an urban hike, and you never feel like you’re truly in nature, but the scenery was nice and it was enjoyable enough. TLDR: bad conditions can make an easy trail challenging. Come prepared and dress for a hike, even though it’s easy and short.

Great view of the city from the top of the mountain, but muddy trails.

Great hike with dogs. The beginning is steep, with dogs on leash on Huckleberry Trail. Having them on leash helps if they are anything like mine and pull you up the hill. Then the loop itself is off-leash for the dogs because it is a fire road for about 90% of the loop.

Super fast and fun trail. Great for kids plus dog on a Sunday afternoon. Great views of SF at the peak!

Easy and nice view, a little bit muddy but still walkable

A little confusing due to some parts being closed. Good views but rather sparse

Really pretty and peaceful but the steep inclines and declines were hard on my knees - I attempted to run this trail and walked 25% of it. Might attempt again on a good knee day

Some of the portions of the loop are blocked off due to endangered plants so have the map on hand to make alternative plans. Great views otherwise
