Fodor's Review

The architectural centerpiece of this attraction is a stark-white 1886 Carpenter Gothic church that overlooks the town and the bay from its hillside perch. Surrounding the church, which was barged over from Strawberry Point in 1957, is a wildflower preserve that's spectacular in May and June, when the rare black or Tiburon jewelflower blooms. Expect a steep walk uphill to reach the preserve. The hiking trails behind the landmark wind up to a peak that has views of the entire Bay Area (great photo op).
