This trail is a relatively straight, moderately steep trail that descends through slightly overgrown thick brush with intermittent rutted sections, then opens up into a grassy, mowed trail before spitting out onto the road just north of Bolinas Lagoon and Stinson Beach

      Don’t climb it unless you enjoy insane amounts of pain

      It is somewhat rutted - but that's bc it's a steeper blue rated trail. Anyone intermediate-ish will be fine on it.

      A good option for this is to climb Randall Trail, which is an easy going fire road that has a good amount of shade. Once at the top, traverse Bolinas Ridge to the top of McCurdy.

      The climb sucks, plain and simple unless you are into continuous pain. This "trail" looks to be an old fire break going STRAIGHT UP the contour. I don't really even see going down all that great, you will be on your brakes the whole time.

      If you climb it prepare to feel like you’re dying even if the weather isn’t that hot.

      Somehow I missed the fork towards the end which should fork left , I guess I was going too fast and ended up on some steep fun fire road that ended at the road which made it hard to find the connection to olema valley... make sure to look out for a left hand fork towards the bottom when riding this!!!

      Climbed it, which I don’t recommend. It’s pretty rutted out but a mostly fun descent nonetheless.
