Gary Giacomini Preserve
5 Redwood Canyon Dr.
San Geronimo, CA 94963
Nature Preserve: Birding, Picnic, Walk, Water Sports
This huge property (1476 acres) is a wild and rugged place. One can’t help but get a sense of true wilderness when walking along the San Geronimo Ridge Fire Road that traverses the ridgeline. On the other side of this ridge, the Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) watershed lands above Kent Lake form an immense expanse of pristine forests stretching all the way to Mount Tamalpais. The windswept ridge has a high altitude feel, accentuated by the presence of a forest of dwarf Sargent Cypress trees. Interspersed along the way are patches of the rare Marin Manzanita, and in the rock gardens between the shrubs are lovely jewel flowers and other delicate blooms in abundance.
