Alpine Dam + Mt. Tam
When it comes to riding in Marin County, the Alpine Dam Loop is second to none. After meandering through a handful of friendly towns, the road turns uphill — and that's when this loop really begins to set itself apart. This ride is all about pleasure and pain, combining fantastic views and scenery with challenging climbs and wicked descents.

What Others Are Saying
Treat yourself to one of Marin's most challenging climbs while taking in views that you'll recognize from the many car commercials where you saw the road and said, "I have to ride there!" Make sure to fuel up with a quick espresso at Fairfield Coffee Roasters before you head up the hill.
Don't kill yourself on the climb after Fairfax. You still have one more big climb and the Seven Sisters!
