Best route from GG Bridge to Samuel P Taylor?

Found many routes googling directions. But all have slight variations. Can anyone point me to a preferred route, please?

Planning a bike camping trip from Daly City.

I don't know if it's the best way but I go from SF, across GGB, down into Sausalito along bike path to left on Blythdale right on Camino Alto grade, through the small towns, Ross, Kentfield to Shady Lane to Fairfax, follow Sir Francis Drake over White's grade, along San Geronimo to Lagunitas and SP Taylor Park.

The way Knotty suggests is the standard route.

Here's a detailed cue sheet (that ultimately goes to Point Reyes Station and back).

You can follow it to mile 22. Somewhere between mile 22 and mile 30, you'll see the entrance to Samuel Taylor.

Thanks guys. Some directions I saw avoid camino alto instead going off to the right on streets parallel to 101.

When you come to the end of the Sausalito bike path, you'll be at the Blithedale intersection. Instead of turning left onto Blithedale to Camino Alto, go straight ahead, you'll be on Lomita. Follow Lomita out and it'll turn into that bike path that parallels 101.

At the end of the bike path go to straight (still paralleling 101) to Tamalpais Ave. At the big intersection,Turn left, you'll come out on Corte Madera Ave. (Camino Alto). Go right and that'll take you to through the small towns to Fairfax.

If you are bike camping at Samuel p Taylor and carrying a touring load, you may want to take the flatter option along 101 on the north side of Mill Valley (Vs. Camino Alto). Here's a map and cue sheet riding north to south. http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path...n-Francisco-CA
