Pine Mountain Tunnel Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This trail, however, is more than just a sweaty excuse to get outdoors. Pine Mountain is a beautiful trek where a wide fire road winds its way up through low-growing chaparral—like chamise and ceanothus—coast live oaks, madrones, and twisted boulder outcroppings. If you hike this trail at certain times of the year (and certain times of the day), you might only see a couple of mountain bikers taking the challenge to get to the top; but the top is where you’ll want to be, for sweeping views of Mount Diablo, San Pablo Bay, Alpine Lake, and Mount Tamalpais."

"It may be short but it's memorable. Slightly northwest of Mt. Tam, the Pine Mountain Ridge area is for advanced riders looking to explore Marin's more sinister side. The going is steep, loose, and rocky - and a whole lot of fun."
