WalkBikeMarin is an initiative by the County of Marin to help make Marin more healthy, livable, and environmentally sustainable by encouraging walking and bicycling as everyday transportation. This initiative was catalyzed by a recent $25 million federal grant to fund the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program (NTPP). The goal of the WalkBikeMarin website is to provide information about all the County’s bicycle and pedestrian projects and programs in one place. For more information on the NTPP see the About the Project page.

How often do you walk?
I walk down the hill to town a few times a week (and back up again!).

Where are your favorite places to walk/hike?
Mt. Tam, along any trail that has a creek. Deer Park, Cascade Canyon. Downtown to get ice cream at The Scoop!

Why do you walk in Marin County?
I think it's crazy to jump in the car every time I go to the store, get a video or go to the hardware store. In Marin, we live in these little communities, often with stores a few blocks away. It's good for the heart (and the earth) to walk instead.

Why do you think walking is important to Marin County?
Biking and walking are important to my health and well-being, and for the planet's as well. I also think it's important to do my best to reduce carbon emissions by walking or biking more.

What's New

 

WHITES HILL IMPROVEMENTS June, 2020 ~ Sir Francis Drake Boulevard has been repaved between the Brown Bridge and Fairfax town limits.  There is now a continuous bike lane in the westbound/uphill direction and the roadway was widened to provide an eastbound bike lane starting at the bottom of the hill.  A high-friction paving material was applied in the downhill direction to improve traction through the curves, especially for when the road is wet.

TIPS FOR NEW AND RETURNING CYCLISTS April, 2019 ~ WalkBikeMarin in partnership with Marin County Bicycle Coalition has prepared an informational page with tips for first-time or it's-been-a-while-since cyclists to get your ride going in the right direction.  

2018 UNINCORPORATED AREA BICYCLE/ PEDESTRIAN MASTER PLAN ADOPTED February, 2018 ~ The 2018 Marin County Unincorporated Area Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan was adopted by the Board of Supervisors on February 27.  The document can be viewed and downloaded from the Plan web page at http://walkbikemarin.org/resource_library_policies.php .  The Plan page also has additional information about bicycle and pedestrian plans, including those of other communities in Marin.
