Miwok Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This nearly circular trail takes hikers along a wide path up and down the pretty grasslands that make up the Marin Headlands. It’s hard to imagine that for nearly 100 years, the area served as a military base of operations. In spring, the grassy hills are filled with wildflowers, including purplishblue lupine and Creamsicle-orange California poppies."
--Jason Fator, Best Hikes With Dogs: San Francisco Bay Area and Beyond (The Mountaineers Books).
"Miwok Liwi Notuka, in the native Miwok tongue, loosely means “Miwok trip, that way.” I do not profess to be an ancient Native American languages specialist, so my phrasing and tense may have some inaccuracies. But this route covers prime Coast Miwok territory (see sidebar), possibly retracing some of the paths traveled by this pre-European civilization."

"This nearly circular trail takes hikers along a wide path up and down the pretty grasslands that make up the Marin Headlands. It’s hard to imagine that for nearly 100 years, the area served as a military base of operations. In spring, the grassy hills are filled with wildflowers, including purplish-blue lupine and creamsicle-orange California poppies. The Miwok and Bobcat Trails will escort you around the U-shaped Gerbode Valley, which takes on many facets during the year. Windswept grassy hills show their colors in spring with the aforementioned wildflower display, go brown in the summer heat, and when the clouds and fog descend, it’s eerie and mysterious."
