This Marin classic route’s tradition goes back several years and nicknamed "Ninja Loop" by the founders Larissa Rivers, Brett Rivers, Devon Yanko, and Nathan Yanko after Devon suggested it because the group was stealthy and secret (and partly an inside joke). This fast route hits many of the best trails in southern Marin (SCA, Coastal, Miwok and Marincello) and as you move around, you’ll have spectacular views south to the Golden Gate Bridge and city, west to the ocean, north to Mount Tamalpais, and east to the Tiburon peninsula.

This route was selected as the North Bay long route for the 2020 Battle of the Bay FKT challenge ( At the start of the challenge (July 2020), Devon Yanko (1:24:40) and Matt Leach (1:11:16) had the Strava CRs.
