One Tam Member Hike - To Phoenix Lake and the Historic Log Cabin
Join us and Mike Swezy, MMWD Watershed Resources Manager, for a hike at Phoenix Lake and the historic log cabin. The site is a scenic gem with great birdwatching, and the hike is less than a mile each way. It starts with a short section of uphill cimb to the Phoenix Lake dam, and then continues along the north shore to reach the cabin where we will learn more about its history and efforts to restore it. The cabin was built in the 1880s for the caretaker of the nearby Porteous Mansion. This may be the only log house of its kind remaining in Marin County. Recognized for its historic significance in Marin history, the Marin Municipal Water District and One Tam are now exploring options to restore this local landmark. Join us to explore this beautiful site and learn more about your local history.
Meet at the Phoenix Lake parking lot, just past Natalie Coffin Greene Park.
