Pine Mountain Fire Road

Sunday, May 21, 2017, 9:00 AM

This outing will explore the wondrous serpentine grasslands and chaparral of Pine Mountain Fire Road.
This open-ended hike will include the option to head down to Carson Falls for lunch. Yellow mariposa lilies and harvest brodiaeas should be prevalent and we’ll make a point of seeking out the rare Mt. Tamalpais bristly jewelflower (Streptanthus glandulosus ssp. pulchellus) and other endemics. It’s a 1.7-mile hike to get to the falls on hilly but well-maintained trails.
Meet at the Pine Mountain Fire Road Trailhead about one-and-one-third miles south of the Meadow Club on the Fairfax-Bolinas Rd. There is a dirt parking lot.
