Karen Herzog

Karen has lived in Marin for over twenty years.  Naturally curious, she’s explored every town on foot from Novato in the north to Mill Valley in the south.  She enjoys leading the way for folks who appreciate her energy and enthusiasm, but require a slower pace.  Her tours are perfect for those who want to see a “little bit” of nature over a 3-hour period.

Jagpal Sran

Jagpal grew up in Fresno on a farm, giving pumpkin patch tours and without big trees at all! Fortunately, she moved to Marin for the past nine years and is entranced with Mount Tam and Marin County. With a sense of adventure and lots of spunk, she will keep you moving and help open your eyes on her walking and hiking tours. She has a go-getter personality that loves a challenge and long hikes that push your limits.

Janet Friedman

Jan led tours all over the U.S., particularly in the Southwest and in national parks.  A fountain of  of facts on Marin and beyond, she has visited over 80 countries and peppers her tours with anecdotes and musings.  Her sense of humor and travel stories will captivate you.  Author of Eccentric America and Eccentric California, she loves sharing her self-discovered walking paths in Greenbrae and digging into what’s special about Sausalito

Sarah Jean Zarko

Sarah Jane transplanted to Marin 14 years ago. Nomadic by nature, Marin’s beauty captivated her, and before she knew it she had a permanent home among the hills of Marin. Sarah Jane leads the perfect hike for those who like to enjoy the moment. Marin has surprising vistas and alcoves where Sarah Jane will gladly take your picture for you. No hike is too big or too small for Sarah Jane, but all hikes will be savored.
