I drove here last week from crappy Buffalo, NY and am just getting settled in and used to the area. Anybody around this area that can point me in the right direction of some good trails? Anybody around that wouldn't mind giving me a tour of the trails too? I am interested in both, close trails that I can ride to and some not so close that would need to be driven to.
Thanks in advance.
welcome to the neighborhood! I'm sure there are trailheads in Larkspur to get on Tam, but I don't know where they are. I grew up in San Anselmo and went to HS at Redwood in Larkspur. If you make it a bit west to Ross, there is the Phoenix lake park area, which links up to tons of fireroads all over Tam. Fish Gulch is a wicked climb up to Alpine lake.
Lots of good stuff around here. Bring your climbing legs.
C'mon and hook up with us locals, like....
Impy (soon to be ex-local, who is touring Washington State, Oregon and Tahoe this week)
pfunk and ScottP
Crashmaster (aka Crazy Andy)
for the Trogs in Stanislaus county. They come out to the coast every now and again. In fact, there is talk of a China Camp assault this weekend. They are a fun bunch of folks.
We usually make it out on the weekends, and sometimes during the week after work. There is a regular Tuesday Slacker afternoon ride organized by Impy, usually in Marin or the East Bay.
Tamarancho is fun, but remember to buy a day pass at Sunshine Bikes in Fairfax. $5 goes to support a killer riding area.
