Hike the Big Trees Trail at Indian Tree Preserve, Novato
The Marin IJ has called this trail "Novato's perfect hike through redwood trees." The trail is approx. 3 miles round trip with "comfortably graded" switchbacks to the top and back. There are additional trails which could be added for a longer hike. This is a good summer hike as it is mostly through trees and has a nice view when you get to the top. For more info you can go to www.marincountyparks.org, click on Open Space, and then on Indian Tree. There is no parking fee and also no restrooms.
