China Camp Loop (3.4 miles)
Cross North San Pedro Road and walk up the paved service road to the signed Shoreline Trail. Turn right toward the Miwok Meadows. The trail winds through the woods and wanders back through small grassy meadows. Turn left onto the Miwok Fire Trail, where, with a bit of a climb, you’ll find the Oak Ridge Trail, and veer left. A portion of the trail will cross with the McNears Fire Trail. Stay on Oak Ridge Trail to complete the loop back to the ranger station. No dogs.
Hwy 101 to Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Head west. Go east approximately 5 miles to the Bullhead Flat trailhead. Park on the road.
680 Trail (2.8 miles)
The new 2.8-mile “680 Trail” connects Loma Alta and Terra Linda Open Space Preserve lands. After years of construction, a wide, multiuse trail cuts runs through the hillside, bridges and decorative rockwork. It also allows access to the top of Loma Alta — one of Marin’s highest points, boasting an impressive 360-degree view of Marin — from both Sleepy Hollow and Terra Linda. There are three points of entry for the trail: in Fairfax near White Hill at Brown Bridge (2.3 miles, 1,100-foot ascent plus another 1.6 miles and 800-foot ascent); at Terra Linda Open Space Preserve (1.4 miles, 600-foot ascent); and on Lucas Valley Road, across from Big Rock Trail (2.2 miles, 900-foot ascent). Dogs are permitted.
