203 acre Park managed by: Marin County Open Space District

Visit Baltimore Canyon in winter for a great waterfall, and in summer for the shady forest trails.

Located on a spur of Mt.Tamalpais, Baltimore Canyon is home to a mixed conifer forest of redwood and Douglas fir. The cool and shaded canyon offers respite from summer heat. The adjacent parklands of King Mountain, Blithedale Summit, and Mount Tamalpais provide opportunity for long hikes, but most visitors to Baltimore Canyon are content with an out-and-back 5-mile round trip trek to Dawn Falls.
