What are the parking and park/trail rules?


There is no designated parking. Limited street parking is available in the surrounding neighborhood. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. Mill Valley parking meters are active 7 days a week. NOTE: The START and FINISH are in: Old Mill Park, Mill Valley

 **The Mill Valley Police Department has requested that participants of our event do not park at the Mill Valley Public Library. Please help us keep our annual permit by heeding this request.

Keep it clean!

Our goal is to minimize our impact on the park and the trail. Together we can make this happen by minimizing use of plastic water bottles, make use of the bins provided, separate out compostable, recyclable and landfill items and each take responsibility for our own waste. Thank you for caring for our environment.

SORRY.  No Pets or Strollers

The CA State Park does not allow dogs on the trails we are using for the Dipsea Hike. The trails are not stroller accessible. If you are bringing a young child, we suggest using a child carrying pack or baby carrier.

What should I wear and bring?

For everyone:

  • Hat with a brim.
  • Water bottles. Fill them up at home. There will be water in the park and at the aid station, plus a couple water fountains along the course.
  • We will get you going with a snack and have lunch for you at the end, but bring extra food just in case.
  • Sunscreen, lip balm, and sunglasses.
  • Medications.
  • Cell phone.

For hikers and runners:

  • Comfortable athletic shoes. Hiking shoes or boots are best. Make sure they are broken in.
  • Dress for weather.
