Description:  The Hoo-Koo-E-Koo and Dawn Falls trail loop is relatively easy, except for a couple of short steep sections both up and down. Mostly single-track trails, it follows Hoo-Koo-E-Koo trail from the Crown Road trailhead, and then the fairly steep Corte Madera trail down along a beautiful creek. After some connecting fire roads, we'll take the short but steep Barbara Springs trail, and then follow the Dawn Falls trail along a stream back up to the beginning.
