Tamarancho Boy Scout Camp - Fairfax Trailhead - Sunday, March 29, 2015
Tamarancho Boy Scout Camp - Fairfax - Marin County

From the GG bridge, take the 101 north to the Sir Francis Drake Blvd exit, and head west on SFD. Follow SFD to Fairfax, make a left on Pastoni, and take the next right onto Center st. Park in the parking lot across the street from Sunshine Bicycles and gear up. You can buy a day pass for Tamarancho there ($5*), or get an individual annual pass for $40, or a family pass for $55.

To get to the trails, continue west down Center St, which turns into Broadway in one block – follow Broadway for 6 blocks. Follow ‘bike route’ sign L at Azala for 1 block, and make a right at the next ‘bike route’ sign at Scenic. Right at ‘bike route’ sign at Manor, follow this for 2 blocks, left at Rockridge, left at Iron Springs for 1 mile. The trailhead is well marked, and on your left. It's a lot easier to follow than it sounds.

I recommend bringing a bell and strapping it under your seat– Tamarncho is no secret, and there are lots of people out on weekends.

* Tamarancho is on privately owned Boy Scout Camp land. The trails at Tamarancho were built by volunteers from the Bicycle Trails Council of Marin ( This was an Herculean effort that spanned 6 years, and took ~11,000 volunteer hours. Tamarancho is still maintained by BTCM – and that costs money. Given the political situation in Marin with MTB trail access on public land, we should all support this effort for legal singletrack riding. Plus, the riding is worth $5…

It’s actually worth a lot more than that.

It’s 100% legal singletrack.

In Marin.
