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 several times a week. And when time allows, I like to spend at least 1 day a week hiking in West Marin.
What are your reasons for walking?
I love to walk with friends so a lot of it is social for me, but I also love to observe the seasons, flora and birds.
What is the best walk you’ve ever gone on in Marin?
One of the best hikes I've gone on was an early morning hike along Lagunitas Creek in Samuel P. Taylor Park. We were with an ornithologist who taught us to identify winter birds by their songs. The sounds, colors and scents were so fresh and vibrant. It was a magical morning.
Why is walking and biking important to you?
It seems to be in my DNA to keep active and to observe the natural world around me. Marin provides close access to many trails with varied biomes; grass lands, marshes, riparian areas, forests and beaches. It has it all and I enjoy every bit of it.
