Marin Headlands Gravel Loop

The Marin Headlands Gravel Ride adds a dirty twist to one of our favorite local lunch rides, the Marin Headlands Road Ride. The ride will reward you with both world-famous views of the Golden Gate Bridge and a quick escape from civilization and tourists on the backroads of the Marin Headlands. Instead of taking the bike path and Bridgeway out to the most well known area of the Headlands through Sausalito, you cut into Tennessee Valley to begin enjoying the Headlands from the dirt only a few minutes after departing Studio Velo. Climb Marincello and descend Bobcat through the remote-feeling coastal hills west of civilization. After making your way down to Bunker Road, enjoy a quick climb up Coastal Trail before a road descent with the best views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The ride ends with the familiar road route back to Mill Valley.
