Samuel P. Taylor State Park
by Bay Nature Staff on July 08, 2012
Samuel P. Taylor State Park offers a cool forest respite on hot summer days with redwood groves, open grassland, and creekside habitat, as well as the chance to see steelhead and coho salmon spawning in the winter.
There’s something for everyone at this 2,700-acre park in the hills of Marin County: picnic and camping areas, an easy three-mile paved bike path, and a network of hiking trails, including a 9-mile loop trail that includes expansive views from the top of 1466-foot Barnabe Peak. The gentle 2.5-mile Pioneer Tree Trail meanders through the redwoods, including a patch of old-growth trees.
