Exploring Tiburon: Dog Friendly Hiking in St. Hilary Open Space Preserve

written by ParoChak July 19, 2015

Weekend hiking in and around the city is always fun since it gives us much needed exercise, a chance to go out and explore the many beauties of the Bay area. Plus, it is so much fun to see Babu running and sniffing his heart out, the wind blowing against his fur and the bounce on his tiny paws. The best part about living in San Francisco is its proximity to abundantly beautiful parks, open resources, wilderness and other forms of natures bounty that is bound to warm the cockles of the hearts of nature lovers and hardcore city dwellers. Since we fall somewhat in the latter category, we sometimes try to leave the chaos of the 49 square miles behind us and venture out to seek dog-friendly hiking trails to get some fresh air and much needed exercise. One such gem of a finding was in the city of Tiburon, which is north of the Golden gate, in Marin County.

Tiburon, at the tip of North Bay, boasts of azure blue water on almost all sides and spectacular views of the city, the Golden Gate bridge and the nearby Angel island, all accessible from the Tiburon ridge trail in the Old St. Hilary Open Space Preserve. A short 1.1 mile hike, its dog friendly and provides breathtaking views all around. For more dog-friendly getaway ideas, read my post on 5 day trips from SF here.

We stopped for breakfast at New Morning Cafe on Tiburon Boulevard (highly recommended) and then headed on Lyford drive and stopped at Heathcliff drive to take in the sweeping views that the trail head had to offer. We started hiking down from there, stopping often to savor in the beautiful scenery. It was a pretty windy day so despite all that huffing and puffing, we did not feel too hot. Overall , it was a Saturday well spent! Highly recommended for you and your kids (human or fur) or anyone/thing else you choose (solitude/camera/other half/friends), this hike is not to be missed!
