White Hill Open Space Preserve
Fairfax, California 94930
Marin County Parks Open Space Leash Policy: Dogs on leash are welcome to enjoy trails. Dogs are allowed off-leash under strict voice control on fire protection roads. Please follow posted rules.
The White Hill Open Space Preserve bridges the gap between the Cascade Canyon, Gary Giacomini, and Loma Alta preserves.
The highlight of White Hill Preserve (390 acres) is the Blue Ridge Fire Road that passes over the summit of White Hill at an elevation of 1,430 feet. This road and the nearby Wagon Wheel Trail pass through impressive stands of manzanita and chamise above steep, rocky slopes.
The rocks and soil in this area are predominantly serpentine. During spring, this landscape is quite picturesque with native grasses and wildflowers sprouting among the beautifully weathered stones.
To protect sensitive wildlife species, some trails in White Hill Preserve are subject to seasonal night closures. Please observe trail closure signs.
From Hwy 101 in Larkspur, take the Sir Francis Drake Blvd exit west past Fairfax and up White Hill. Trailhead is on the left before the crest of the hill.
Help us keep this trail beautiful and dog-friendly:
• Always follow the posted rules as they may have changed
• If in off-leash area, keep your dog under voice command
• Respect and protect wildlife and habitats
