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

MILL VALLEY-SAUSALITO PATH REPAVING August, 2017 ~ Marin County is repaving two segments of the Mill Valley-Sausalito path.  Other than spot repairs, the path has not been resurfaced since its construction in 1982.  The segment between E. Blithedale to Vasco Court was recently completed, just in time for the new school year.  The segment between E. Blithedale and Almonte Blvd. is scheduled for this fall and will necessitate closure of the path during much of the construction period; detours and alternate routes will be provided.  The segment between Almonte Blvd. and Gate Six Road is not funded at this time.  

NEW BIKE BOX FOR TIBURON BOULEVARD INTERSECTION December,2016 ~ To improve safety for users of the Tiburon Boulevard and Greenwood Cove/Blackfield intersection in Tiburon, Marin's first "bike box" has been installed in conjunction with several other intersection improvements.  The project was a partnership between the County, Tiburon, and Caltrans, providing better and safer connections across Tiburon Boulevard (State Highway 131) between the neighborhoods on the north side, including Bel Aire school, with the east-west bicycle and pedestrian connector route for the Tiburon peninsula.  More information on the bike box project and how a bike box works is available here .
