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: What a fun ride! The difficult climb is worth the views of the Bay, and not to mention the decent! Surprisingly challenging trail with lots of roots and steep edges, great to practice technical decent and uphill endurance.

Review: This is the best beginner trail I have been on. My kids are 9 (daughter on a super heavy Trek 24" ) and 10(son on an older GT chucker 2.0) and they had an absolute blast! Several spills and bails occurred during the ride and usually my daughter is not having fun at that point but she was all about it this time. The ascent is mild and the the descent is easily managed so she was feeling confident and really enjoyed the many miniature rock gardens along the route. " I really like this place dad! There's lots of problem solving to do!"

Review: Nice single track at china camp. Well maintained by the rangers, tons of turkeys and deer on shoreline. Packed on the weekends though. Great place to get up to speed riding singletrack, easy and flowing.

Review: get a map before entering the trails. the climbs and view are great. Tall riders beware, a lot of the trails are riddled with low hanging branches.

Review: Rode China Camp over the weekend. After all the rains the last 2 weeks, the trails are in bad shape. There are a number of wash-outs, and a couple slides that have closed a few trails (Shoreline has a sizeable slide).

Review: Good loop, easy uphill, and a fun, fast descent. Nothing crazy, but a good ride for a Saturday.

Similar Trail: camp tamarancho, but not as good.
