Hiking in Marin
For many of us in Marin, hiking is more than a way to burn calories and get some fresh air. It’s a way of life. It’s a chance to spend time with loved ones, see friends, or steal moments alone. Marin and the Bay Area in general boast dozens of clubs for every type of hiker. Looking to make your walk of faith more rigorous? The Bay Area Jewish Singles Hiking Club and the North Bay Christian Hikers group are always open to newcomers. New moms can mingle during a baby boot camp outing. John Benus of Marin Moonshiners leads moonlit hikes, always ending with a pint at the Pelican Inn. And the Mount Tamalpais State Park offers organized hikes, including educational treks led by the Mount Tamalpais Interpretive Association. With hundreds of miles of trails crisscrossing our open space and public parklands, choosing your ideal route can be a challenge. The following are some of our favorites.
