Loma Alta Fire Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"Cross open grasslands on old ranch roads with around-the-compass views. This steep trip climbs the hill that separates San Geronimo and Lucas valleys (with an elevation gain of 1092 feet and a loss of 1052 feet) on a wide, rocky, and exposed trail. It is best taken on cool mornings in summer or bright sunny days in winter."
--Jean Rusmore, Bay Area Ridge Trail: The Official Guide for Hikers, Mountain Bikers and Equestrians (Wilderness Press).
"These two hikes explore opposite sides of Lucas Valley. Both hikes climb to a peak offering spectacular views. Good spring flowers. Bicycles on weekends."
--Don & Kay Martin, Hiking Marin: 141 Great Hikes in Marin County (Marin Press LLC).
