Pine Mountain Loop


San Rafael, CA 94930


A very scenic, strenuous, and technical loop on rocky fireroads through the Mt. Tamalpais watershed. There's no singletrack, but it's highly recommended nonetheless. The loop starts off with a couple gut-buster climbs on steep stretches of loose boulders before reaching the summit of Pine Mountain. From here it's mild up and down through meadowy ridgelines until a progressively technical blast down to the bottom of Kent Lake. Watch out for deep wash-out trenches in the middle of the trail during this descent. A couple of minor stream crossings (no problem) and then it's time to dig yourself out - an 1,100 foot ascent lies in waiting. The loop ends with a few rocky downhill stretches.
