Hiking Maps

Here are some awesome hikes right out the door and the map of walk to downtown Mill Valley. Why are there hikers and Mt. Bikers on our street?  Easy trailhead access at the end. Dream Weaver. 

Home history and notes

Notes on the Home and the Neighborhood:
 
599 Edgewood has a unique and colorful history.  By sheer coincidence we met the now adult grandchildren of the original owners, who built the house before there was a paved road, carrying materials with donkeys.  The owners had a seafood restaurant in San Francisco which they had to close during the Great Depression.  It was originally a one-floor house (downstairs and upstairs apparently added later), and the area near the kitchen with windows facing the bay was we believe a porch.
 
In the 1960s or 70s for some time the singer Maria Muldaur lived in the house (perhaps in the cottage; she is still a local fixture), and we have heard that Bob Dylan had Thanksgiving Dinner at the house one year, and the Grateful Dead, as well as Mimi Baez (Joan Baez’s sister) were regular visitors. We have also heard that Yoko Ono’s daughter from her first marriage was hiding there at some point, as she was wanted by Interpol on drug charges…although we not independently verified such tales!
 
Edgewood Ave and the adjacent streets are part of a thriving neighborhood community unlike anywhere either of us have ever lived.  It’s basically a mile-long cul-de-sac ending at the pipeline trail, and neighbors are constantly strolling and hiking up and down the street; I (Victor) met more friendly neighbors on my first day living there than in over 20 years on a block in San Francisco.  There are occasional get-togethers during the holidays and at the now annual end-of-the-road party. The hiking right from the front door is extraordinary; in 20 minutes one can reach the Mountain Home Inn, and then take off in all directions, including a nice 1 hour loop on the Panoramic Trail, and then returning down Madera, though the yard of our artist neighbors Woody and Beverly, and then down the green metal staircase which plops you back onto Edgewood.  You can also hike to Muir Woods and back in a couple hours, and avoid the entrance fee and the parking reservations! Or head up Mount Tam and then have access to an entire network of hiking and bike trails.  One can also hike down the Dipsea stairs to downtown Mill Valley in a mere 35 minutes.  One delightful ritual you will hear is the blowing of the conch shell by one neighbor at sunset, and other neighbors are known to join in with other musical instruments.  In sum, there is still magic in Mill Valley, and it exists on Edgewood Ave.

599 Edgewood Avenue

Family-friendly Mill Valley is all about schools and sports. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, homes in the Marin County city range from 500-square-foot hunter's cabins to multimillion-dollar mansions tucked away on winding, narrow lanes under the redwoods. Coffee is king in Mill Valley. Downtown, three separate coffee shops do a brisk business. At the Depot, as the sunny town center is called, moms with strollers, kids on tricycles, and teenagers kicking hacky sacks relax in the open-air plaza, which now houses an independent bookstore and cafe. The Depot is also a jumping-off spot for hikers and mountain bikers heading up the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. Nightlife in Mill Valley is anchored by Sweetwater Music Hall, which hosts many well-known musical acts. As the groomed playing fields at the community center attest, sports are big in Mill Valley, with soccer, baseball, and lacrosse leagues all popular.
