Carson Falls Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"A hike to this seasonal waterfall features superlative views. The waterfall also flows through the breeding ground of the rare foothill yellow-legged frog, which may be seen clinging to the rocks in the pool at the base.It’s amazing how two waterfalls in the same watershed, located just a few miles from each other, can have such different settings. Carson Falls, facing west, is surrounded by grassland, semiarid as the season creeps into summer and drying to a trickle by August. Meanwhile, the canyon holding Cataract Falls, facing north, stays moist and green year-round, even as the cataracts dry out. Which is better?"
--Tracy Salcedo-Chourré, Hiking Waterfalls in Northern California (Falcon Guides).
"Both of these out-and-back hikes offer great views. The first hike visits the tallest waterfall in Marin, the second hike explores the ridges. Many bicycles on weekends."
--Don & Kay Martin, Hiking Marin: 141 Great Hikes in Marin County (Marin Press LLC).
