Trail Description
About this trail
This is a good one to take your friends who are new to mountain biking on, or to get in a quick after-work ride. Even though this is a good beginner trail, there is still some fun to be had for the hardcore riders. Not much to else to say, except this is about the only leagal (public) singletrack in Marin.

Review: While living in Oakland, this was one of my favorite slow rides. If you keep it inside the park, it is very tame but beautiful and fun. Going counter-clockwise, up to the power lines then around you could spend anywhere from an hour to three depending on your motives. I first rode here with my wife and it was her first MTB experience, she did fine and loved it. Pull your car into the park's parking lot and pay the few bucks to support your local park system.

Review: Trails have been completely flattened on lower sections and are now like sidewalks -- sad what has been done here and hopefully not the model for the few other single/double track trails in the area.

Review: This is another easy/medium difficult/short/longer/uphill/downhill combo trail. Mostly fireroad that is crowded w/hikers on wknds so try to go on a weekday. It can be as easy or difficult as u want really. Most challenging perhaps is the climb after u leave the beach. If u have kids the most challenging is the same descent which is steep, fast and rocky. A couple of side trails 1 can take besides the straight shot to the beach. Best is the climb towards Marincello which is up and behind the horse stables. A different world up there.

Review: Nice trail but really limited. This is really just two trails that link in a loop. The Bay View Trail is really good but short. Shoreline trail is just a beginner trail. Lots of hikers so be courteous since this is pretty much all they've got.

Review: Perfect trail for beginners. Nothing too tight or rocky or uphill or downhill but still enough for a more experienced biker to have a bit of fun.

Review: Beginner/Intermediate Trail, Starting from parking area going CCW its a switchback climb, followed by a ridge ride to the far end of the loop dropping down to a larger trail that parallels the road. Several spots to shorten route with drops to the trail along the road. Bottom section is HEAVILY used by day use hikers families etc. Top of trail along ridge is almost all MTB. Very scenic, nice place to take a beginner as long as you stay on bottom section and just do an out and back. You can enter this trail system from either end of the loop easily.
