Marin Creek & Redwood Ramble
Join us for a great nature and history hike in Samuel P. Taylor State Park.
Our route includes idyllic Lagunitas Creek and stands of ancient redwood trees. We’ll also view historic remnants of the West Coast’s first paper mill as well as the site of Camp Taylor, served by the North Pacific Coast Railroad starting in 1875.

Take Sir Frances Drake Boulevard thru Fairfax and Woodacre and turn left into “Camp Taylor.” At the entry kiosk, pay the ranger a park admission fee of $8/car ($7 for seniors). Drive straight ahead and turn left to park near the second restroom. (You have gone too far if you reach a bridge over the creek.)
We will walk one loop from the park’s creekside picnic ground, returning for lunch before traversing the second loop of this “figure 8” hike. Bring water, lunch, dress in layers, and wear good hiking shoes. Bring poles if you normally use them. If you have questions about this outing email Ken Lavin or phone him (415) 543-6771 x 321.
