Ascent Trip Report

My second time doing Corte Madera and Los Pinos, but loved it equally the second time. Parked here. The road to the parking was much improved since last time I was here. It can be driven by any car.

We took the Espinosa Trail to the saddle then headed right and on up to Corte Madera via the nice trail. Headed back down, and took the fire road to Los Pinos. I recommend coming down from Los Pinos around sunset as the view west through the valley beneath Corte Madera is stunning.

The GPS tracks here are likely the most standard route to grab both peaks in a single trip if you're keen to hike instead of drive.
