Stewart Professional Reviews and Guides

"This hike stays entirely in a scenic Douglas fir forest as it climbs the eastern slopes of Inverness Ridge. Dusty when dry. Bicycles possible."

"Fern, fir, and huckleberry knit these trails together, weaving a shady route perfect for a hot Indian summer’s day. Whether bathed in bright sunlight or wreathed in fog, the Douglas firs that envelop the slopes of Firtop have a mystic quality. The venerable trees filter sunlight, sharp or diffuse, through a prism of green, dappling the forest floor and nourishing a thick undergrowth of berry brambles and fern. The Stewart and Greenpicker Trails ramble through this ethereal woodland, breaking free of the forest only in a clearing at the summit of Firtop. On this high point along Inverness Ridge, the trees frame a tiny meadow perfect for picnicking and resting, especially if the sun is out and warming the grasses."

"The Stewart Trail is the only trail in the vicinity open to bikes, and is cyclists’ only option to reach Wildcat Camp. A wide, well-graded route in a shady forest, the trail offers great views on both the west and east sides of Inverness Ridge—of Olema Valley and of the coast. Hikers and equestrians might find that combining the Stewart Trail with some of the numerous other trails that lead to the coast makes for a more interesting route."
