Blithedale Rdg Fr Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is a hike where you wouldn’t expect it. Nestled in the developments and neighborhoods is a trek that features remote trails through forest of native trees—mixed hardwood and conifer and some redwoods, too. Six trails lead into this open space, where Dawn Falls is a perfect destination if rains have fallen recently. Best yet, dogs are allowed on all six trails. Start on the other side of the gate and go up on an old fire road called Two Tanks, which climbs from the trailhead along a babbling stream. Here, you’ll be shaded under tan oaks, redwoods, and bigleaf maples. The climb continues after you turn right onto Corte Madera Ridge Road at about 0.8 mile. From here, you’ll make a left at Huckleberry Trail, which as the name implies, heads through a thicket of evergreen huckleberries."

"Bring binoculars and camera for this roller-coaster hike along Blithedale Ridge offering stunning views of Mt. Tam and Marin. Lots of hills and some bicycles."
