The trailhead curves as it goes up and there are paintable views all long. You will be able to park pretty close to the trailhead, but there is room for about ten cars. Please be mindful of this and park close to the others. It is a breezy to windy location. Please come dressed with this in mind and bring bungee cords and stakes if you have them. Alternatively, you may bring plastic bags to tie to your easel to hold it down. Directions to Crest Ave From Berkeley, take 580 towards Marin and get off...Read More
