Deer Park Fire Road Professional Reviews and Guides
"A steep and rutted fire road takes you down Repack, legendary trail of the first mountain bike race. Unfortunately, there is no pickup truck to take you to the top these days. You have to earn this ride. On Pine Mountain Ridge there are some equally steep and much rockier climbs to tackle before stepping back in time. Ride with a buddy; the river crossings at the end can make for a good laugh in the wet season. This is still one of Joe Breeze’s favorite rides. Trail surface: 63 percent fire road and 37 percent paved road."
--Lorene Jackson, Mountain Biking the San Francisco Bay Area (Falcon Guides).
"This hike along roads and trails explores the hills and canyons west of Bald Hill offering great views, dark forests and lovely wildflowers. Can be muddy or dusty and has bicycle traffic."
--Don & Kay Martin, Hiking Marin: 141 Great Hikes in Marin County (Marin Press LLC).
"This is a good wildflower hike that begins in a canyon, then climbs the north slopes of Bald Hill. Great views of Mt. Tam and Bolinas Ridge. Some bicycle traffic."
