2 hikes in west Marin County California

A venture out to west Marin where I don't usually go yielded a wealth of beautiful scenery, green hills, lots of flowers and blue skies with windswept clouds.

Black Mountain

This has also been called "Elephant Mountain". The Youngbloods had a song about it in the sixties. It's one of the most beautiful hills in the Marin County. As for the name, well it seems there's a "Black Mtn." every 25 miles in California. Not to mention White Mtns., Pine Mtns., Eagle Peaks, Pyramid peaks,, Table Mtns., etc.

There is no trailhead. It is on private property. I parked by Nicasio Res., crossed the road scrambling up some steep terrain and maybe a barbed wire fence up the southeast slope. Nobody around.
