Stroll on Old Railroad Grade with Marin County Open Space

Meet at the end of Glen Drive in Fairfax. We’ll enjoy a slow stroll along the old railroad grade, a route that takes us in and out of a series of cool, forested valleys separated by open grassland and coastal scrub habitats. We’ll employ a car shuttle so we can have a one way relaxing morning walk. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend. High fire danger cancels: Call (415) 893-9527 after 8 a.m. on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled.

This walk is for ages 15 and up. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.
