Cross Marin Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"The paved Cross Marin Trail that snakes through Samuel P. Taylor State Park is a level, creekside route, perfect for a family bike outing. From the campground at the main park entrance to the Platform Bridge in Tocaloma, the paved trail follows the route of the North Pacific Coast Railroad that ran from Sausalito to Cazadero, in the heart of the North Coast timber country."

"Paved, flat, and shaded by redwoods, the Cross Marin Trail is perfect for a family outing. The riparian habitat that flourishes along Lagunitas Creek envelopes the northern reaches of the Cross Marin Trail so completely that travelers seldom glimpse any of the surrounding terrain—the rolling pasturelands roamed by dairy cows, the nearby highway, sometimes the creek itself. The route is flat, paved, and easy, set upon the former bed of the Northern Pacific Railroad, which boosted the paper milling enterprise of Samuel Penfield Taylor, for whom the nearby state park is named."
