Indian Tree Open Space Preserve

From the park website...
This 242 acre preserve west of Novato is accessed via trails originating from the end of Vineyard Road, which cross lands owned by the North Marin Water District. These trails ascend through shaded woodlands to reach the ridge beside clusters of massive redwoods and fields of ferns. After the long ascent, the rewards of this hilltop experience make it hard to turn away and head back down to the civilized world. 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. The open places at the top are usually moist from summer fog drip and caressed by cool west winds. Views along the way stretch from the nearby Stafford Lake to the outline of Mount Saint Helena at the edge of distant Lake County
