Climb Summary

Climb Summary


  This climb is very mild and one of the main connectors from the  northern Marin County coast to Petaluma and Novato.  The "climb"  begins in the village of Olema and ends a mere 1.1 mile up the hill.  


 Traffic/Roadway surface:  There is a fair amount of traffic on this  road,  but Marin is very cyclist friendly and there are Share the Road  signs  and generally a shoulder to ride in or near on the climb. As  with  most of the Marin  County roads, this  one is in excellent condition.  

     The Olema climb is circumstantial evidence that Strava has its roots  in Marin County as the segment number for this pedestrian climb is a  mere 154.
