  • Amazing trail with excellent views. Perfect for running and hiking, with a nice beach at the end. The trail is well maintained and very wide, with multiple marked trails coming off of it.
  • It is a lesser-known place than some of the other Marin County sites, so it's not crowded. But it's as scenic. Just watch for the poison oak on the Rhubarb Trail (and possibly other trails). Remember: "If you see three, let it be!" (I included some pictures of some poison oak.)
  • Natural beauty. Great for trail running or casual walk. Secret beach at the end of the trail after 2.8 miles.
  • Cool, clam and the best place to start and end a hike. Easy parking and bathrooms at both ends of the trail. The perfect soothing hike.
  • Easy access mainly level trail to the beach with a few small hills but also bathrooms and benches. Lots of more challenging trails around as well. Another awesome Bay Area park
