Amazing views and such a large expanse. We cycled trough and we could not see any of the local animals but we enjoyed the tall tree coverage and the good road conditions

No, it was on the Cataract Trail. The road to Bolinas is also very scenic, and I encourage exploring that too. I was fortunate to go at a time when we were having record rainfall.
