Overview

Experience a classic short section of the Bay Area Ridge Trail towards the Golden Gate Bridge.

Description

Start ascending out of Tennessee Valley along the Ridge Trail (Marincello Trail). As you top out, you'll be rewarded with great ocean views and views of Saulsalito. Keep riding along the ridge, and you'll start descending on the Bobcat Trail fire road down to the road. Cross the road and continue onto the Bay Area Ridge for more climbing.

When you finally top out on the Hwy 1, you'll feel like you are on the edge of the world looking over the ocean. Descend to the highway towards the bridge. Continue down to the bridge and take in the views or get another perspective by riding down to Horseshoe Bay.
