Here is a simple hike north of Bolinas in Marin County. Hiking is good for the heart, the mind, the body, and the spirit. In most places if not all, there are trails and routes for hiking, most of the time managed by regional, state and federal parks. It is a matter of finding out where to go, how to get there and what to take into consideration for hiking safely.
One rule of thumb is to stay on clearly signed and designated trails.
Please remember we are still under COVID19 restrictions. Please be responsible and wear a mask and follow other mandates. Also, be your best bodyguard. Never hike alone at dawn or dusk. Go to places where routes are clear and safe; try to go with others but if you must go alone, make sure that other hikers are in the area; be smart and be safe. Northern California has amazing parks and hiking trails in great conditions, with a number of hikers always on the trails.
