Cataract Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This is a magnificent hike that features creeks, forests, views and flowers in some of the most remote areas on the mountain. Can have standing water in winter."
--Don & Kay Martin, Hiking Marin: 141 Great Hikes in Marin County (Marin Press LLC).
Don't be fooled by the mere 6miles. This hike is mostly uphill; rocky, steep mountain side and gushing crisp waterfalls. Perfect for the everyday adventurer looking for a sweet burn in thighs. Time your hikes carefully, it's always darkest below the foliage. And watch out for salamanders and newts, they're all along the trail.
This is a spectacular hike in the spring. The waterfalls are flowing and the wildflowers are in bloom. Lots of shade so you will not overheat.
