Ridge to Waterfall

This walk is for ages 18 and up. Our hike will begin with a slow climb up the Pine Mountain Fire Road through serpentine chaparral. This stretch hosts several chaparral-loving birds as well as an array of serpentine endemic plants. From the ridge we’ll descend through a shaded forest lush with ferns and flowers, 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.

Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.

No registration is required.

Questions: Contact Shannon Burke at or (415) 893-9520.
