Join Ken and Dee Himes for a fairly long and rough loop hike through Douglas-fir woodland and serpentine chaparral, where the area is quite diverse with various species of Ceanothus and Arctostaphylos. We expect to see Ceanothus jepsonii and the endemic Arctostaphylos montana ssp. montana, not found in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We will also walk through a picturesque sergeant cypress (Hesperocyparis sargentii) woodland.

Wear sturdy hiking boots with ankle support for rough trails, about 4 miles in length, with gradual elevation gain/loss of 500 feet. Bring snacks, lunch and water.

Directions: Take Hwy. 101 north, across the Golden Gate, to the Hwy. 1/Stinson Beach turn-off and follow the signs to Mt Tamalpais, turning right onto Panoramic Hwy. At Pantoll Campground, take the right branching road, which is Pantoll Rd., until you intersect Ridgecrest Dr. Cross Ridgecrest into the Rock Spring Parking Area.

We’ll meet at 10am sharp at the Rock Spring trailhead. Travel time/distance to the parking area is about 30 min./10 mi. from the Hwy. 1/Stinson Beach turn-off onto Hwy. 1. Allow for additional travel time through San Francisco. For more information, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
