Marin Municipal Water District: Kent Trail along Alpine Lake Professional Review and Guide
"A little bit of everything and a hike that takes you away from it all: This is an exhilarating walk along the conifer shores of Alpine Lake, up through a dark redwood forest onto a manzanita-covered ridge with good views. Along the way, you can pick huckleberries in the early fall, and admire many water-loving flowers among the ferns and mosses along the banks. This is treasured watershed land in Marin, for both its consumer and recreational value. Trails Surface: Gravel and dirt road followed by a narrow dirt path that climbs rather steeply for about 800 feet and is a bit rocky in places. A double-track fire road takes you back down to the dam."
