Gunshot connects Brown Bridge (top of White Hill) to Loma Alta (Smith Ridge) with a brutal climb!

Description

Please Note: Gunshot Fire Road is officially being renamed to Sunrise Fire Road. The change has not been made on Marin County Parks maps as of May 2016, but will be reflected on future maps. The trail was renamed after a random high profile murder at the start of this trail (the killers were caught).

The first part of Gunshot Trail is an easy fire road that connects the Brown Bridge a the top of White Hill to Old Railroad Grade Trail. It is a popular connector and popular spot for hikers and dog walkers.

The second part of Gunshot Trail is, well, brutal. It is steep, exposed, and often has large ruts. Think old school fall line ranch road. It is mostly used as a downhill connector from Loma Alta- Fairfax (Smith Ridge Fire Road) and 680 Trail to connect across to White Hill Trail for longer rides.

It is rideable uphill, but not that much fun. I would choose Loma Alta- Fairfax (Smith Ridge Fire Road) over the Gunshot climb any day.
