Hiking along Matt Davis Trail with Pacific Ocean views.

Steep Ravine is a real jewel in Marin County's crown. Cutting deep into the landscape over millennia the water rushing through Webb Creek has created a spectacularly steep sided and lush canyon shaded by towering redwood trees and populated with a wide variety of local flora and fauna.

This trail really draws the crowds, so we heartily recommend heading out early and hitting the trail as soon as you can.
