"A ridge top between the towns of Tiburon and Corte Madera, Ring Mountain is surprisingly enjoyable to hike and explore, although mountain is a misnomer. Still, the hike includes a moderate 600-foot climb that invigorates. On the way up, enjoy expanses of native grasslands, a compact bay, oak, and buckeye woodland, sculptural rock outcrops, trickling seasonal springs, and colorful wildflowers. Miwok Indians left signs of their inhabitance from 2,000 years ago, and environmentalists left traces of the strong spirit in which they fought to protect these precious 377 acres for us hikers and nature lovers. This eTrail also includes suggested nearby attractions, camping & lodging, restaurants, and local outdoor retailers."
