» Official Trail Map by MCOSD: Good map showing various trails.

From the parking lot, cross the road carefully and enter Tiburon Uplands. Follow Uplands Trail, which forms a loop. The loop may be extended by a sidetrip to Heathcliff Fire Rd in Old St Hilary’s Open Space Preserve. Along Upland Trail, there is a bench (see photo album) where an unnamed side trail climbs up to Old St Hilary’s Open Space Preserve. This trail is well maintained but not shown on the official trail map. In about half a mile, it connects with Heathcliff Fire Rd (see trail map) at an unmarked junction. From this junction, you can see great views of Richmond – San Rafael Bridge in the north.
