Carson Falls & Kent Lake: Hike, Yoga, Meditate

Every first Sunday of the month we shall plan on hiking at this location.  Mark your calendars & join us as the seasons change.  Below is the information, hope to see you there!

Nearby Fairfax there is a trail that has beautiful views of the Richmond bridge and the hills.  It passes by Carson Falls, follows a creek and ends at Kent Lake.  We'll meet in the small parking lot at the trail head and hike to the lake where we'll have a seated meditation and lunch by the calm and serene lake.  In a field on our way back, Laurin and Larissa will lead a creative and gentle yoga which is available to all levels.

The hike is about 6 miles with 1500 feet elevation gain.  As always, please bring water, lunch, your yoga mat, sunscreen and whatever else will make you most comfortable on this journey.  Unfortunately, the falls will not have much water at this time of year but the hike is beautiful and peaceful.  There are areas of both sun & shade throughout the hike.  The way down to the lake is very steep so where proper shoes.

Here is some more information about the hike with photos:

A $15 dana (donation) is greatly appreciated for yoga and hike facilitation.  As always, it helps fund meetup fees and helps cultivate good karma!  ;)  If you have no money, we empathize with your position--everyone should be able to enjoy this practice and be immersed in nature.  It is a truly beautiful experience.

Directions to arrive to Parking lot from downtown Fairfax:

Drive up Bolinas Rd about 2.5 miles.  There will be a fork in the road, bear to the right in order to continue on Bolinas-Fairfax Rd for 1.5 miles.  You will pass a golf course on your left, about .5 miles up the hill will be a parking lot on the left side that fits about 20 cars.  The trailhead is across the street but we'll meet at the parking lot.
