Mt. Tam West Peak Hike - Hydrology of West Peak
Join local experts and Marin Municipal Water District staff and learn more about how the hydrology of West Peak influences the watersheds it feeds, and how geology and climate in turn influence the mountain's hydrology. We'll explore adjacent springs, seeps, and meadows to understand the interconnection of these important resources, as well as what opportunities this presents for the restoration of West Peak.
Meeting location: The Mountain Theater overflow parking lot (also known as the quarry parking lot) is located just past the Mountain Theater entrance. If you are unfamiliar with the location, this Google Map marks the lcoation of the Mountain Theater (marked as the "Cushing Memorial Amphitheater" on the map), and you will see just north of it, the parking lot marked as "Quarry Parking Lot". To get there, drive up Pan Toll Road, make a right on Ridgecrest Blvd, pass the Mountain Theatre Fire Road and Rock Spring Trail (the entrance to the Mountain Theatre), and look for a dirt parking lot on your right where we are meeting.
