Hiking

Barbara Springs Trail is steep. We went down with a 3 and 4 year old which probably was a mistake. We survived and thankfully the trail is short and put us out close to the car. A beautiful walk, the 3 year old loved it before we started climbing. He thought it was “beautiful and awesome”.

Great trail! Very wooded, lots of shade, and beautiful through the woods.

Excellent views and nice scenery. As of July 5, there was no waterfall at dawn falls (too dry). Really enjoyed this hike, though there are a lot of trails and I did go a route I was not planning originally. Agree with comments below that suggest starting counter clockwise, it is a bit steep in the beginning. A bit crowded at the trailhead as well. Paths are narrow in some parts. Shaded by redwoods for a majority of the trail. Lots of lizards. There are no bathrooms - I used the public restrooms at the town park beforehand. Recommend parking 0.5 miles away on the side streets, the closer you get to the trailhead the harder it is to find parking.

Beautiful hike. Went counter clockwise. Mostly shaded. The climb to the fire road is not too bad, with natural and made made steps. The drop back, however, is technical, with some lose gravel in parts, which makes it slippery.

Easy trail, very shaded, all dried up. Trailhead’s at the end of a wealthy suburb.

Nice shaded trail. Mostly easy to social distance, a few narrow parts but even then only passed fewer than 5 people on those sections— just give the right of way if you have room to step off. Overall nice hike! I went counterclockwise and the last part was unexpectedly steep, just a warning!

Great little loop! With Marin opening up more there are no longer signs about the trails being for just locals. King Mountain is a great and less trafficked addition to the Dawn Falls loop. Watch out for bikers on the fire roads and know that which ever direction you hike this will require a steep decline where hiking poles are useful. Fido friendly.

Barbara Springs super steep and technical. Dawn Falls beautiful as ever. SMFR flat and wide, great for social distancing.

Pretty challenging at times but really beautiful and nicely shaded. A little bit crowded but manageable.

It was pretty today! First time I’ve been here, I brought my dog. The trail was very nice and had enough shade. No waterfall or water though. Just some baby baby creeks.

We went off on the lady big trail and there was a lot of good shade and woods as well as an amazing view of the mountains and the bay

Mostly shady except for about a mile of the hike. Only at the beginning and end of the hike did it get crowded. Highly recommend parking on a side street

Such a lovely trail. Starts in a neighborhood and has amazing trees. There was no water in the waterfall in June, but it was still nice. Second half is an open road with a steep section to and from it. Overall an amazing find!

Hiking

Beautiful trail in full shade throughout. The first 1.5 miles is walking by stunning homes. I ended up going counterclockwise which had the heart rate pumping a few times. The signs were kinda misleading. So once you reach the peak at the flat ground, turn to the left instead of going further up because that’ll take you to the hoky poky trail (lol forgot the exact name). Overall - moderately easy.

Beautiful and not too difficult. Located at the end of a private road with amazing houses.

Great, easy hike with good shade cover. Only challenge is parking, as leading up to the trail for a mile it's supposed to be residents only.

Soooooo happy to be out on this beautiful trail!! Great canopy cover, great for a hot day! Definitely agree the first quarter mile of trail is not moderate but technical. Definitely rocky scramble....but what a great workout! Gets your heart pumping! Lots of city noise but since most back country hiking is not accessible right now, a small trade off to be in nature!

It was a beautiful trail. You could see beautiful views. However there is no place to rest or enjoy a quick lunch. We went clockwise and the hike uphill was strenuous but worth it. We enjoyed the up-hill walk as much as we enjoyed the downhill. The parking was an issue, hence park before the one-way roads starts.

Really nice hike - it’s a bit tricky on the downhill but otherwise a pretty nice hike that’s well-shaded throughout

Hiking

Tougher end of moderate, for sure. Trail data is incorrect so this stretch was more like nine miles. Some steep parts, some pretty rocky parts. Lots of good moments but not my favorite in Marin.

Beautiful trail but definitely steep. For those who have balance issues, it is not suggested. Dogs allowed on leash, and off leash with strong recall during the fire road part.

HikingClosed

Not technically closed, but there are signs up saying the park is only open to locals (covid), and that if you have driven there you are violating this. Skinny trails for how many people are in the park - not much room to stay 6ft apart, so definitely not recommended for this time. A nice trail otherwise - some good views of the bay, and plenty of shade for hot days.

Steep but fun and interesting. Most of the hike has good shade, so it’s nice on a hot day. A few spots with nice lookouts but mostly in thick, gorgeous woods
