A good 1000 foot descent into Lucas Valley. Great views of the Bay, Skywalker Ranch and some of the best singletrack in Marin.

Access Info

Either ride up the trail or park at Luiz Fire Road, climb that and traverse the ridge. After the almost 2000 foot climb it's all downhill back to the car.

       Great views riding up. You can ride the ridge over to goat trail or tKe sky walker back down. This trail rides great after a light rains. Expect lots of foot traffic, especially on weekends.
