There’s no better time than this to enjoy the beauty of this preserve, the creeks are flowing, and the waterfall should be spectacular. We can enjoy wildflowers as well as mushrooms, and if the sun is shining, we might even find some of the first butterflies of the season. When the creek is full, we have to use a trail that is cut into a stone bank above the water; this narrow section can be slippery and challenging. This walk is for adults. We request that no animals (except service animals) attend. Heavy rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 on the morning of the walk for a recorded message to see if the walk is cancelled. David Herlocker will lead. Questions: Contact David at (415) 893-9508 or DHerlocker@marincounty.org.
