Paul, there are at least 3 jurisdictions at CC: the state park, city of san rafael, and then there's a park (county?) whose name escapes me.pauly mac said:Is the backside single track a legal trail? Who owns or manages the land?
does anybody know why there isn't a sign at the other end of that singletrack ?bigtrees said:Paul, there are at least 3 jurisdictions at CC: the state park, city of san rafael, and then there's a park (county?) whose name escapes me.
Some of the trails are explicitly legal (e.g. gold hill fire road and trails in that park). Some are explicitly illegal (city of SR jurisdiction). Some are not marked in any way.
BTW the city of SR trail that is marked is officially closed, i.e. it's illegal for hikers too.
I suggest you hook up with some locals to learn your way around the backside.
I'll be sure to immediately stop riding that trail everytime i see it.slide mon said:Which is funny since if I was going to ride that trail I would ride it UP 95% of the time.
Nobody saw nothing! You can't prove anything!Dan'ger said:I think it's because the non-biking jurisdictators don't think we actually ride UP that trail!
I've come across 3 cars in the China Camp area. The one you're talking about, one near where Back Ranch FR pops up to the nike site, and another on the front side off the shoreline trail not too far from the camp sites. There are probably others, I tend not to look around too much when on the bike. I went up to the car on the front side, it had a college parking sticker on the bumper from 1972. Apparently back in the 60's/70's you could just drive up in there. An old timer up the street was telling me about the people who used to live in our house before we moved in. One of them used to drive a jeep up in the land that became the park. He'd bring friends up there 4-wheeling and shoot racoons.RJG said:As for the car, I agree, it's been up there forever and I don't know any history.
