Saturday, February 25, 10 a.m.–2:30 p.m.

We’ll start at the Pine Mountain Fire Road and climb through an area with exposed serpentine along Carson Ridge to the junction with Oat Hill Fire Road, a distance of about one mile. There are incredible 360-dgree views on this route. We may see early flowering Mt. Tamalpais Manzanita. We’ll then follow the Oat Hill Fire Road about 0.7 miles to the Carson Falls Trail. Along the way we’ll look for fetid adder’s tongue, milk maids, and other early wildflowers. We’ll lunch at Carson Falls and may catch a glimpse of the endangered yellow-legged frogs that live at the falls.

Meet at the Pine Mountain Fire Road Trailhead about one mile south of the Meadow Club on the Fairfax-Bolinas Rd. There is a dirt parking lot. Rain Cancels.
