The trail up to the peak of Corte Madera is fairly steep, but the view as you go is fantastic! (The bugs were not… :(  The view is very expansive, and includes Los Pinos Mountain to the North East, Pine Valley Creek below and the desert further out.

TIPS: Take a little break when you get to the top of the first hill under one of the trees.  The views are great and so is the breeze in the shade!  Go in the spring as raptors (Eagles, Falcons and Hawks) all nest there!
 

FAVORITE PIECES OF GEAR: Cloud 18 Camelbak with 100 ounces of water; Merrell hiking shoes and my camera.
