Charged by rainfall in the Mayacamas Mountains, this waterfall is one of many headliners along the trails in this well-tended nature preserve. The lovely and secluded seasonal waterfall in the Bouverie Preserve, most vigorous toward the end of a winter with healthy rainfall, plummets down a brushy cliff in an alcove of the steep and heavily wooded Mayacamas Mountains. The hike to the fall is a stellar, docent-led immersion in the nature of the Sonoma Valley. The 535-acre preserve is the legacy of architect David Bouverie, who welcomed a number of mid-twentieth-century writers and artists to his Valley of the Moon property, most famously food maven M.F.K. Fisher, who lived on the ranch for a time.
