Carson Falls

This walk is for ages 18 and up. We'll be joined by One Tam staff for a hike along Carson Ridge to Carson Falls. This hike begins with a slow climb up the Pine Mountain Fire Road through serpentine chaparral. From the ridge we’ll descend through a shaded forest lush with ferns, milkmaids, and, if we’re lucky, blooming fetid adder’s tongue. Then we’ll have lunch beside the waterfall, which is one of the few remaining breeding sites in Marin for the rare foothill yellow-legged frog. This hike is just over four miles round trip and is moderately strenuous. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.

Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 473-6087after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at (415) 473-6086.
