Bolinas Ridge is the eastern side of the Olema Valley and is directly across from Pt. Reyes National Seashore. It is part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area with a ridge top trail open to bicycles. It offers great views, conifer forests, bucolic grasslands, and a connecting trail to Samuel P. Taylor State Park. That's Bolinas Lagoon off in the distance.
The trail takes you up into a stand of Douglas Fir.
Former roadie, Jim West (ex Santa Monica B. C.) appears awed by the abundance of wildlife up on the ridge. We actually did see a bobcat that day.
Yours truly enjoying a fine day on the ridge.
The Pt. Reyes map
works fine for the ridge.

Note: If you slip down into the Taylor S. P., you can get the opportunity to ride a bike on the old roadbed of the North Pacific Coast RR.
