A Redwood tree forest in the middle of Mill Valley, one of this country's most beautiful villages. Young growth, yet only 200 to 300 years old. Shaded area for the locals, very peaceful. A short walk to any spot downtown. Easy access to all Mill...More

This is wonderful forest park in the center of Mill Valley, CA. There are the remains of the old sawmill which cut the redwood lumber that helped to rebuild San Francisco after the earthquake and fire of 1906. There is a beautiful waterfall amid the...More
