Rec and Park Posts Signage for a Very Short Mountain Bike Singletrack Trail Atop Twin Peaks

Friday, October 6th, 2017

Now what _I’d_ call this trail is a dirt sidewalk on the north side of Twin Peaks Boulevard what takes you from Twin Peaks Reservoir to Christmas Tree Point Road.

Anyway, here’s what RPD is doing these days. This is relatively new, these Jersey barriers connecting the trail to Eureka Peak. Note the post on the right:

This is new, right?

Note that it allows bike riding.

Now we’re looking east. The trail is on the other side of the guardrail:

This trail will take you to the reservoir and/or Mount Sutro / Midtown Terrace. I’m calling it singletrack ’cause it’s kind of narrow. And of course it’s shared with hikers.

This is noteworthy since singletrack is rare in SF / the bay area.

It’s not much of a trail for bikes, but it’s a trail anyway…

Build a Trail, Go to Jail in Marin County, the Home of Mountain Biking

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Only in Marin! That’s right, Marin County, the birthplace of mountain biking, and home to nuclear-tipped missiles, endangered deer, and marauding mountain lions (nee cougars), can’t abide you people building your own single-track MTB trails.

Michael Philip More is getting a ten-day jail sentence for illegally building a quarter-mile trail at the end of Robinhood Drive in San Rafael.

Approximate path of the trail – the white line is a quarter-mile long

Does Michael More wish there were more singletrack MTB trails in Marin? Given that MTBers are mostly confined to fire roads in Marin County, signs point to yes.
