Beautiful for biking!

Winding through the chaparral and dense forests while periodically peeking out to bay views is spectacular! Recommend going during the weekday to avoid some of the crowds. 1 star aff for a fee based system for day use.

You'll love who you are when you are in Marin!

Marin County is just a little out there. As in one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards and Napa and Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that's unique in this clever corner of California. Take a vacation from the typical vacation
