    Marin Headlands night riding questions.

    Based on search results it seems well known that some night riding is legal in the Marin Headlands.

    However, the official websites for the park are devoid of any information about this. They don't say if it is legal or not, or if some or all of the trails have the same rules. There's no mention of hours of operation except for visitors centers.

    So I'm sort of curious about the people who know -- how do they come to know what is allowed?

    Some of the threads turned up by search results are pretty old, and stuff like the area including Dias Ridge may not even have been open when the threads were active.

    Being able to, say, ride Miwok Trail to Dias Ridge to the coast at night might be fun. Anybody know if that is officially OK to do that?

    I remember digging into this a few years ago.

    Basically, some of the general guidance (e.g., if you ask a ranger, or take a look at some "plan your visit" websites) says that the park is open from sunrise to sunset. If you read the actual rules, however (I think it's called the Superintendent's Compendium or something weird like that), it says that the park is open to the public 24 hours a day.

    Aha, found it, see pages 4 and 5 of this: http://www.nps.gov/goga/parkmgmt/upl...ndium-2013.pdf

    Happy riding!

    Thank you.

    The weather didn't cooperate with the possibility of a full moon ride there tonight, but it is good to know the potential is out there.
