A Singletrack turning into a doubletrack that heads from Mountain Home Inn to downtown Mill Valley. Lots of hikers use it and expect to see a few bikers as well. Erosion is a bit issue so you may want to think twice before riding it in the wet.

Access Info

Once you are at Mountain Home in , you take the down sloping road next to the main building. You will descend around 2-5 minutes depending on your downhill speed and will see a generator/electrical box near the trail head. Although you might think you will be entering someones backyard, this is the trail head.

Harder to get grip on the rock sections near the bottom because of a fine layer of dirt on top of the rock , making it easier to slip while going...
