Eaton Park & Big Canyon Park 3.70 Miles

Eaton Park & Big Canyon Park

-Eaton Park & Big Canyon ParkSo I was supposed to go hiking in Marin yesterday but I was wore out from Saturday. Instead of sitting on the couch eating cookies all day I opted to go for a more urban hike. I drove 10 minutes from my house into San Carlos and hit up Eaton Park.

-Eaton Park & Big Canyon Park-3Eaton Park is a small park but it’s really nice! I was honestly surprised. I loved the trails around here. There were a few people out and they were all polite. The traffic noise isn’t too bad since both parks are in pretty much a residential areas, much better than highway noises.

-Eaton Park & Big Canyon Park-5There is a lot of shaded trail which is pretty awesome. It’s not fully shaded but the pockets of sun aren’t bad. Since Eaton Park is pretty small I decided to head across the street to Big Canyon Park┬áto its trail. It’s pretty much more of the same. Overall doing both parks (though not exhausting Eaton) will gain you 3.5 miles. I got 3.7 because I kind of took a wrong turn. Oops.

-Eaton Park & Big Canyon Park-6So overall this is a great urban park. Enough to keep things interesting, stairs on steeper grades and easy parking. The views are okay, mostly residential. No ocean which is always a bummer but with it so close to my house it’s great for exercise.
