From: Vineyard Road
To: end of Indian Tree Fire Road in Novato
There is not yet a trailhead at the south end of Indian Tree Open Space Preserve, so this segment of the Ridge Trail is an out-and-back trip, going from north to south. Hikers and equestrians explore Indian Tree’s redwood and Douglas-fir forests on a shady and well-graded trip. A number of viewpoints on the trail look out to different parts of Marin. The mountain biker route has some steep ascents and is in a more open landscape, with especially nice views of Novato.
Bikes allowed only on Indian Tree Fire Road.
Elevation Gain 1,200 feet one-way
