  • Stay on Sir Frances Drake Blvd. all the way (total distance approximately 23 miles). Continue on Drake Blvd  past San Anselmo through the town of Fairfax, over the big hill, past Woodacre, San Geronimo, the Golf Course, Forest Knolls, and Lagunitas. From Lagunitas it is 5 miles further to Turtle Island’s headquarters. You will pass through Samuel P. Taylor State Park and the Devil’s Gulch parking area. After Devil’s Gulch, look for our sign.
