Bay Area Ridge Trail to Little Tank – After Work Hike

This 3.2 mile hike ascends 438 feet up the west side of Mount Burdell in Novato. We’ll start at the Dwarf Oak Trailhead (part of the Bay Area Ridge Trail) on Novato Boulevard and head up to Little Tank to a peak summit of 548 feet.  Along the way we’ll cross a trail bridge, pass through open grassy slopes, and meander through a shady oak forest before reaching our destination. This hike will take roughly 1 ½ hours.

Place: Mount Burdell Open Space Preserve

Trailhead: Dwarf Oak Trail, 3078 Novato Boulevard, Novato CA 94945

    Sorry I couldn't make it yesterday, I will be out of commission from surgery for most of September, but look forward to hiking again after that!

      Wouldn't leave you behind, and as the designated Sweeper, I.e. (old slow guy) my job to keep an eye on everyones rear. As a guy, I'm Pretty good at that. Years of practice. Glad you made it.

    A nice hike on the flanks of burdell. I enjoyed spotting the many Deer, and Kristi displayed an uncanny ability to spot the wild and wooly worms of Burdell. If I fall any further behind I may become the permanent "Sweeper"!

    Seems appropriate John's Son might be Born on a Green Boot Thursday. Are all the people on the wait list invited to come on this hike as well?

    • John K.

      Hey Bruce, everyone is welcome to attend the hike as long as the group size does not exceed 20.

    Hey All!
    With John out (Congrats! We'll expect newborn Tyler Patrick so show up with boots soon!), Maria and I will be leading.

    The best place to park is on Novato Blvd, aside the baseball field, just before the powerplant and housing sub division.

    The trail goes first behind the homes, then into the open space.

    I may be a little late, so if we want to wait until 6:15 to start - else I will catch up behind y'all.

    See you all soon!

    Hi John: I'll be coming but my husband has a conflict. So there is one more space if someone needs it. Gloria
