Tamarancho reopens to LOCAL riders + Local trails update

Updated 5/7/20

Good news from Michael Dybeck head of Marin Council, Boy Scouts of America. We urge you to stick to his guidelines -- for everyone's safety:

"Update on trail access based on the current directive from Marin County Health and Human Service:

As with other outdoor parks and open spaces, access to Tamarancho trails is limited to local passholders who are able to access the area and trailheads either by foot or by bike. Physical distancing is required. To aid in physically distancing, travel should be in a clockwise direction.  

We understand this requirement limits trail use to Marin residents who reside in the general area of Tamarancho.  We trust that other FOT members and passholders who reside outside of Marin will understand these restrictions are in place for the protection of Bay Area wide public health.

This order is in effect until 5/31/2020 or until modified or continued. 

We will change our signage at the base of Iron Springs Road and at the Kiosk.  We have been fielding phone calls at the office and advising people that if they are from outside of the area, that they need to wait until the order is lifted."

Also note Sunshine Bicycle Center is still NOT currently selling Day Passes to Tamarancho. However you can purchase a Day Pass online at the Boy Scouts Tamarancho Pass Store.

Updated 4/3/20

During the current stay at home / shelter in place orders, cycling's still good to go for essential exercise. But know about the trail closures that exist.

  • MCBC has a great resource page.
  • Tamarancho: See update above, reopened to local riders only. Tamarancho is completely closed, including the Flow Trail. This comes from the Boy Scouts.
  • Wagon Wheel: Wagon Wheel is on County Open Space within the Cascades Reserve, therefore technically would be open, but do not access it through Tamarancho. Access would be up from Cascade Dr. or over from Whites Hill (both tough!).
  • 680: If you ride 680 from west to east, please continue along the ridge and exit down Fawn Drive to Ross Valley, or Freitas Parkway to the San Rafael side. Do not use Solstice, San Domenico or or Triple C exits, those are closed. San Domenico School has students living on campus and security guards - please be respectful.
  • MMWD: As of March 24 MMWD lands are open to recreate but without motorized vehicles.
  • Point Reyes Nat'l Seashore currently remains open to recreate -- non-motorized.

Overall, do not drive to trail heads or open space -- please walk or cycle to your hike or ride.

All this is subject to change -- please visit park and land agency sites and social for up to date info.
