Trail shared by Bill Donahoe

The 1.3-mile climb is worth it. Expansive views of San Pablo Bay and San Francisco.

Need to Know

Parking on Queenstone Lane, a residential street. No bathrooms.

Description

A steady, sometimes challenging climb for the first 1.3 miles (from 150' to 1000'). The climb moderates as you hit the top of the ridgeline. At 2 miles, you'll find a singletrack trail off to the right for a run into Blackstone Canyon or a singletrack to the left leading down to Lucas Valley. At 2.4 miles, the Chicken Shack Fire Road heads off to the right, ending at Alameda del Prada Park in Novato.

This trail can be combined with Big Rock Ridge Fire Road and Big Rock Trail for a great eight mile run (park one car on the top of Big Rock and another at the bottom of Queenstone Lane and shuttle).

Flora & Fauna

Wildflowers in the spring. Occasional red tailed hawks and American kestrel along with more common turkey vultures.
