One Tam Member Hike - Wildflowers of the Chaparral

Join One Tam staff for a late afternoon spring wildflower hike on the south side of Tam! We will hike from Bootjack along Old Stage Road to the West Point Inn, a gentle climb past serpentine barrens and dense chaparral, seeing many plants that are unique to this area. We will talk about these plants' relationships to fire, traditional uses, and distinguishing features. Once we arrive at the West Point Inn, you can stay and enjoy the view or hike back down with us to Bootjack.

This hike is easy to moderate, with a distance 1.6 miles one way, 3.2 miles round trip. Elevation gain: approximately 500 feet.

Meeting location: Bootjack Parking Lot on Panoramic Highway in Mt. Tamalpais State Park. One Tam staff will provide parking passes. Map link:
