For the run featured in tis video, we take the following route:

From the Mount Tamalpais Watershed HQ and Bon Tempe Reservoir, we take the Rocky Ridge Road trail skyward, ascending the north side of the mountain. We eventually reach Rock Springs Lagunitas Road and then join Laurel Dell Fire Road.

Check out the short trail running film we made during this particular run. It gives you a flavor of what it’s like to go trail running in Marin, California, in the Spring.

After some time we hit Ridge Crest Boulevard, which is another good location for parking should you wish to explore trails starting from a higher point and overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

It is absolutely stunning up there with 360 degree views of Marin, including Stinson Beach, Mount Tamalpais and San Francisco City if you look to the horizon. Trail running in Marin is certainly something special!

After taking lots of photos and more video, we headed back the same way we came, until we reached Cateract Trail, just off the Laurel Dell Fire Road.

Running and hiking the Cateract Trail, Marin California

The Cateract Trail is busier with some adventurous tourists looking to take in the beautiful Cateract Falls. The trail, in this direction, is a steady downhill run or hike on a single track trail, so get ready to deal with oncoming tourist traffic around the blind corners. Eventually, we made a right turn onto Helen Market Trail which continues down to Alpine Lake, running beside the water. The trail then split and we took Kent Trail all the way back to Bon Tempe Lake. Scroll down to see our Strava activity which shows our complete route with elevation and distance data.

Another fantastic day on the trails but isn’t every day a good day when spent outdoors?
