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. It's a steep, rocky, and exposed old ranch road, best traveled on cool mornings in summer or bright sunny days in winter.

This trail description is excerpted from the 2019 Bay Area Ridge Trail Guidebook. For details on all trails, trailheads and more buy the book from Wilderness Press.
