Favorite Hike: Lake Lagunitas

Lake Lagunitas is located in the town of Fairfax in Marin County, above the Meadow Club on lower Mount Tamalpais.  It's only a short drive from downtown Fairfax, but feels picturesquely remote.  The lake is in fact a reservoir, one of seven which provide water to the county, so there is no swimming, but some fishing is permitted.  We love it for the easy and lovely trail around the lake, and the incredible array of birds that are attracted to the water.  There are also several smaller trails which spread out from the lake, making it easy to spend anywhere from an hour or longer there. 
Note: As of this writing, the parking lot requires an eight dollar fee per car, payable by cash (no bills larger than $10 accepted)
