Description

Hikers and equestrians head north through woodland, over grassy hillsides with scenic views of Stafford Lake, around Little Mountain, and through forest and alongside Novato Creek in O'Hair Park. Mountain bikers are allowed on a 0.7-mile fire-trail section in Little Mountain Open Space Preserve that edges a residential neighborhood.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
