Sunday Hike (Sleepy Hollow Trail)

http://bahiker.com/northbayhikes/tlsh.html

I recommend keeping small dogs on leash at the start of this hike (~5 minutes) because of the occasional, non-attentive bikers that race around the blind turns. Once we hit the dirt trails, the incline hills are fairly mellow, bikers are a rarity, and dogs are ok to be off-leash with vocal control.

This is at the far end of Freitas Parkway (exit Freitas Parkway towards the mall, keep going straight to the end of the road). The cross street is "Arlene Terrace, San Rafael"

    The trail was perfect for our pooches and for us humans, too. Andrew and other dog owners were great company along the way to share resources for our dogs and other experiences.

    111 Arlene Terrace, San Rafael CA

    This is the address for one of the apartment units that sits by the trail gate. Use directions for here and then grab any street parking spot. The trail is gate is 5 seconds from this apartment complex.

    i live in Sausalito and would love to attend the hike..is there a specific address to meet . I am generally unfamiliar with Marin having just moved here in August. It looks like a great area for hiking.

      If you take the Manuel T Freitas Parkway exit from 101 (stay right if you are southbound; stay left if northbound), all you do is just drive straight until you dead end. The dead end is the trail entrance marked by a gate.

    Point of clarification, there are two parking entrances to this trail. A north gate (http://www.bahiker.com/northbayhikes/tlshdnorth.html), and a south gate (http://bahiker.com/northbayhikes/tlsh.html). Both gates join up within 5 minutes of each, exactly at the point where off-leash is allowed. If anyone is late and wants to find the group, my cell is[masked]

    As a general rule, I tend to wait 15 minutes after the "start time" of any hike to allow for delays due to traffic, errands, alarm clocks,etc.

    This hike would be so convenient for me and I love discovering new places. I'm wondering if there is lots of road/traffic sound on the trail. TX! Lorna

      It's a very quiet trail. The only noise traffic would be from the nearby apartment complex, if any
