Picnic facilities, horseback riding and hiking trails, fishing in Jordan Pond - this park has a lot to offer. It is popular with naturalists with a variety of plant and animal wildlife to enjoy. The Garin Barn Visitor Center, open on weekends, offers programs for visitors to identify different species at their own leisure through pamphlets and displays. Additional displays teach about local history. Many enjoy the blacksmith shop and the antique farm equipment. In the late summer the park hosts an apple festival with folk music, games and, of course, apples.
Lagunitas Creek meanders through the Samuel P. Taylor State Park. The scenic stream originates in Mount Tamalpais and then feeds several water bodies that supply drinking water to Marin County. Lagunitas Creek is an important habitat for Coho salmon.
