Carson Ridge

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. The trail is rocky and there are several hills along the way. Total miles: 4. Elevation change: 385'. This walk is offered in partnership with Marin Water.

Remember to bring a lunch, and binoculars if you have them. No pets (except service dogs) are allowed.
