Description

Loma Alta is a Marin County landmark and one of the county's highest peaks. It divides the county's
four major watersheds: Miller, Corte Madera, Lagunitas, and Nicasio Creeks. This Ridge Trail section
climbs and descends open grasslands with spectacular 360-degree views at the summit. It's a steep,
rocky, and exposed old ranch road, best traveled on cool mornings in summer or bright sunny days
in winter.
