Like many of these extremely peaceful and scenic western Marin County climbs, we are surrounded by redwoods much of the way. The climb begins at the northern end of Bolinas Lagoon and climbs to the 3 way intersection of Ridgecrest Blvd (the route from this point to the top of Mt. Tam) / Fairfax-Bolinas Rd / Bolinas Ridge Rd. It is not uncommon to encounter more cycling (as of 8-29-15 there were 19,682 cycling rides up this Strava segment) than vehicle traffic along this quiet climb. The roadway is narrow with no shoulder, but the route is safe due to low traffic volume.
Start on right; some nice views on the way up
Narrow but lightly traveled road; Finish is at intersection with Fairfax-Bolinas Rd from Alpine Dam and Ridgecrest Blvd
