9 mile One-way Jean... Big Rock to Chicken Ranch

Jean wants to hike one way from Big Rock to Pacheco via Big Rock Ridge and Chicken Ranch... and I love planning hikes for Jean.... So....
This moderate 9 mile hike has altitude with attitude... Fantastic north Marin, Solano, Napa and Sonoma county vistas.

We'll carpool to Big Rock and Jean will give us all a ride back at the end of the hike!


It's gonna be warm so sunscreen, hydration and gratitude that you brought enough hydration are necessary.

Snacks at the second highest point in Marin are optional...

Lack of goodies from Trader Joe's or chickens that won't lay eggs for Jeans hard-boiled cancels.

    Great day, hike, women, mountain and ridge plus brownies & ginger chocolate. Thank you all! And thanks for the water tip. I will drink more and see if that helps how full sun affects me.

    How do your one-ways work? Is there a ride back to starting point?

    June 14, 2014

    • Jean B.

      Hi! Don't worry. It will work out. Even if i need to make two trips. Hope we can leave two cars at finish point. But really a minor drive... See u soon!!!

    Thanks Glenda. Sherry and I are coming w/o dog as she got a foxtail but thanks for considering her. (One of us would have stayed w/her so she wouldn't have needed a ride. CU Monday.

    Does this hike go to the top of Big Ridge (something I've been wanting to do for a long time close once - since we see it from our house)? Also, OK to bring a dog?

      Hi Gael, Yes this hike goes to the top of Big Rock Ridge (starting from Big Rock on Lucas Valley road)... I'm okay with voice controlled dogs on this route... I'm not providing rides back to the trail head so it would be important that whoever is going to be the driver also be comfortable with a dog in their car.
