This is a great beginner singletrack. It is located in the heart of Marin County and a very popular destination for mountain bikers and hikers alike. Great camping facilities on site as well. There is a $3 trail use fee per day now as well, there is a kiosk at the trail head.

Access Info

San Pablo Exit off the 101, just look for China Camp State Park signs.
