Marin County is justly famous for its natural beauty carefully preserved from over-development over the last 50 years. Tiburon's natural treasure is Old St Hilary's Open Space--122 acres of open land at the end of the Tiburon peninsula with sweeping, stunning 360 degree views of...More

We were heading out and needed a stretch before we left...and it was on the list so a shirt drive, would be a steep walk. Up the hill we parked and walked. I see from the map that like much of Marin this would be...More

Nice but sometimes windy hikes with views of San Francisco Bay and the Godlen Gate Bridge. Bring your camera.

We had a group of friends who gathered at a home in Tiburon. Although most of us are nearing 70 years old, we thought this up and down short walk was the highlight of the day. It was a spectacular day in San Francisco and...More

I head up this way all the time. I'm putting September 2016 down but I've been hiking this open space for 3 years. It's terrific. The view changes all the time from fog to sun, to ships slowly moving across the bay and out the...More

It takes some work to get to this park, and that probably helps it be such an unspoiled, peaceful place (along with a reasonable parking fee). It features a beautiful rolling green lawn that gently slopes down to a fishing pier. At the top are...More

I walk here every day. Tiburon is a beautiful city and we love living here. It's small but worth driving in to see the gorgeous views.

The Open Space Preserve by Old St Hilary's (got married there in 1990:) is a fine spot to view San Francisco skyline out to the Golden Gate Bridge-over to the Marin Headlands & Mt Tam. Well worth the short hike up to this lovely spot!

Hi Rosanna, you should be able to see it from the ferry. It is possible to go up on foot. There are few routes to go up, by the library and' or the Elephant Rock, (longer but not too steep) or the more straight forward one... More

Just a short walk up Beach street to the church - maybe 10 minutes - but enjoy the houses along the way. The church is part of an open space preserve and there is a trail that goes much further up the hill through the... More
