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.
