Easy Moderate 8mi Pixie Garden / Sun Trail / Cascade Canyon/ Miller Ave. loop

As you know there's nothing I enjoy more than sharing a bit of my home town with my friends. This easy moderate hike is an eight mile loop that offers a walk through the delightful Pixie Garden in Homestead valley... a bit of the Dipsea and Vistas from the Sun Trail, a wonderful waterfall, cool Redwood forest and a bit of Mill Valley History as we return to our starting point on Miller Avenue. 

Hike Map

What to bring: Sunscreen, hydration, enthusiasm, layers if there's fog... snacks, gratitude...
Hurricanes or swarms of Jellyfish cancel...

I'll provide Mid-route shorter return directions (sans Glenda alternatives: ~6 miles total distance) if requested.
