Location Details:
Meet at the large roadside parking area for Azalea Hill/Pine Mt. fire road, about six miles west of Fairfax at the top of the hill on the Fairfax-Bolinas Rd.

A trip co-sponsored by CNPS and "Friends of Corte Madera Creek. We'll see flowering chaparral wildflowers and shrubs on both serpentinite and sandstone soils. If we're lucky, we'll find California groundcone (Boschniakia strobilacea) an unusual parasitic plant which grows on Arctostaphylos montana in the dwarf forest of Sargent cypress (Callitropsis sargentii). Our route will take us north along the Pine Mountain fire road about 2 miles to the Cascade Canyon fire-road junction. Here grows the only Marin population of Fremontodendron californicum. The Carson Falls are a side-trip option.

Doreen Smith will be leading this hike.
