WildCare Family Adventures: Hike in Beautiful Indian Tree
This is one of the best preserves to visit during a summer heat wave as the trails up the north facing slopes are cloaked in forests of oak, bay, and madrone. These trails ascend through shaded woodlands to reach the ridge beside clusters of massive redwoods and fields of ferns. So many different habitats mean that there is a tremendous variety of animals to encounter as you ascend from the valley to the redwood groves at the top. The open places at the top are usually moist from summer fog drip and caressed by cool west winds. WildCare STRONGLY encourages carpooling, or you can reserve space in our free shuttle service from the Canal area of San Rafael.
Getting there: From Hwy 101 in Novato, take exit 463 for San Marin Dr west 2.7 miles. San Marin Dr turns into Sutro Ave at Novato Blvd. Follow Sutro Ave 1 mile, turn right at Vineyard Rd and follow 1 mile. Trailhead is on the left where the paved road becomes a dirt road.
