Walk to the Top

This walk is for ages 18 and up. We’ll try to make it to the top for lunch, but that will depend on how many flowers, birds, butterflies, and other discoveries catch our eye along the way. We’ll ascend through a series of cool forests to the top of the ridge where giant redwoods catch the summer fog. The trek to the summit is long, but worth every step. Distance: 6.5 miles; Elevation gain: 1,300 feet. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 7am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required. 

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at or (415) 893-9520.

Directions: From Hwy 101 in Novato, take the exit for San Marin Dr west 2.7 miles. San Marin Dr turns into Sutro Ave at Novato Blvd. Follow Sutro Ave 1 mile, turn right at Vineyard Rd and follow 1 mile. Trailhead is on the left where the paved road becomes a dirt road.
