Sunday Drives

Question: What’s better than a weekend day in West Marin? Answer: Getting there. Any visit to the recreational or gastronomic attractions of Marin’s western venues is better enjoyed with a Buddhist state of mind, meaning the journey is as important (if not more so) than the destination. Here are three great stretches of a cross-Marin trek, good for four wheels or two.

99  Hicks Valley Road If you sometimes think, Hey, I’m not in Kansas anymore, then these two lonely lanes of asphalt west of Novato will keep you guessing. Cows, barns, an ancient schoolhouse and, often, not another soul in sight.

100  Sir Francis Drake, Lagunitas to Olema A curv-a-licious road through redwood forest that ends with the rewarding expanse of Bolinas Ridge.

101  Highway 1, Muir Beach to Stinson Refresh at the Pelican Inn, drive (or bike) to the overlook just past the homes, gasp at the views of the expansive Pacific and re-refresh at Stinson.
