Mountain Biking Marin Headlands

****   Add a review
#142 of 1,003 mountain bike trails in California

This is a great route with great sampling of the Marin Headlands. There is a wide offering and
network of trails. You can really obtain a mix of climbs and decent. Most of the trails are double
track with a few single tracks here and there. It's basically a good mix and has something for
everyone. If you are looking for hard core technical trails this might not be the best option but the
environment is truly amazing.

Getting there
I like to start from the Golden Gate Bridge and maybe park your car at Battery East Parking lot. The best way to get to the trail is cross the bridge and head towards the Headlands trail access points. This GPS route crosses the bridge heads towards Saulsalito but takes a quick left onto Bunker Road / Tunnel. You will then see a parking lot off Bunker Road on the right. I follow the Bobcat trail up hill to Marincello trail. I then hit the horse stables then head back up hill using Oak Hills trail then down on Miwok train. This will take you back to Bunker road and the Golden Gate. You also have a lot trail options from here as well. Rodeo Valley train, etc.

    Great views mostly fire road with a few sections of single track. Miwok trail has a few lengths of single track switchbacks, but lots of climbing up mountains, not much flat trail to focus on technical skills.

    Big steep hills, doubletrack/fire road, with awesome views. a few very minor technical sections. but more of a cardio blast with great views.

    I rode Tennessee Valley to the north, heading toward Muir Beach, it's one hell of a climb for almost three miles, but the views west over the Pacific Ocean and east over the entire north Bay Area are amazing, also many places to branch off on to some cool single trac. I rated this trail because if you ascend and return at TV the fire road main trail is very steep and loose, I blued my rotors on the way down also reccomend shin and arm guards. if you fall on those rocks and gravel it's going to be painful.
