Event description
Join Greenbelt Alliance on a hike up the Coastal Trail to explore the flora, rocks, and wildlife of the Marin Headlands.

About this event

Our trail is a botanist's delight, with native plants and late spring wildflowers galore. For those more geologically inclined, we’ll pass outcrops of Marin's well-traveled Franciscan rocks, formed in Jurassic seas far from present-day California. Our route includes a visit to the Battery Townsley “newtist colony”, where we’ll sneak a peek at the secretive salamanders.

Optional visit to the Point Bonita Lighthouse after our hike.
