    We took our horses out on this loop for a change of scenery. The scenery was great! Although the lower trails to the beach were crowded for the holiday, this loop was not as there are some reasonable climbs involved. As 90% is fire road it's not technical, but a good place to get cardio going. There's pretty good visibility for other trail users and bikers and hikers alike were very polite about trail sharing. The last part, a single track where bikes can go uphill (we were going down), was mildly technical - some bridges and some rocks. All in all a good multi-use trail which is likley to stay pretty dry in winter.

    Ran this loop 21 August 2005 beginning at in TN Valley. Runners will find the initial climb up Marincello enough to get the blood pumping so that you can enjoy the reward of the rolling, winding downhill of the Bobcat Trail. From the low point where the Bobcat and Miwok meet the real climb begins. Here the Miwok relentlessly rises with a mellow slope punctuated by a couple of steeper sections.
    Finally, the Old Springs trail branches off to the left and winds across wood bridges until the loose drop back to the TN Valley.

    Trail is in great shape and shared by hikers, bikers (a couple of cyclo-cross guys too) and horses. I run this trail often (2 times a week) and was shocked to see so may flowers still in bloom and to encounter a rattle snake sunning midtrail on the Miwok up hill.

    A good, easy run 1 - 1.5 hrs or 2 with mellow walk breaks
