Description [Suggest Changes]

From the Skeggs Point parking area, head north along Skyline Blvd. about 500 feet to where the trailhead begins at the gate. Fir Trail (Upper) starts off with a moderate uphill section but then rolls downhill on a wide, old logging road. With the exception of a large clearing near the beginning, this trail is mostly shaded and lined with fir, manzanita and madrone.

At approximately 1.2 miles, a path to the west veers off and heads uphill a short distance to the vista point. This small hilltop clearing has views of the distant ocean through trees and a single picnic table. There is also a memorial plaque commemorating the 19 people who lost their lives in the 1953 plane crash in this park. However, the actual spot of the crash is along Resolution Trail. Ride back down to the Fir Trail (Upper), and continue south to the junction of Fir Trail (Lower) and Resolution Trail.

Temperatures are often cooler on these Corte Madera trails because of their proximity to the coast, but this proximity can also provide dense fog (especially in winter) that enhances the eerie beauty of the forest.
