Directions: Take the Central San Rafael Exit off of 101 and make a left turn onto 3rd Street. Third Street will become Miracle Mile, then Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Once in Fairfax, turn left onto Bolinas Fairfax Road. Turn right onto Cascade Drive, then at the stop sign merge right onto Laurel Drive. After some time, Laurel becomes Oak; after this, take a left onto Toyon Drive. Because this is a residential area, there will be some occasions when there will be no parking at the top of the hill, in which case you will have to find a spot to park farther down the hill. The fire road is on the right side of the road. The hike up to the view point is about a half mile climb. On the side of the fire road will be a few flat boulders that people utilize for chairs. Sit down and enjoy the sun rise.
If you are a confident mountain biker, the Tamarancho biking area is a seven mile loop of technical single track. Pam’s Blue Ridge also connects to the Elliot’s Reserve, which after a mile hike ends at a spectacular water fall.
The Elliot Family bought the land many years ago. In memory of their daughter Pamela, they named this Ridge with one of the best views around after her.
A few locals will run up here on occasion, but not many will enjoy the view that this place has to offer.
