Geography

Lagunitas-Forest Knolls is located at 38°0′54″N122°41′38″W / 38.01500°N 122.69389°W / 38.01500; -122.69389 (38.015064, -122.693874). [4]

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 11.0 square kilometers (4.2 sq mi), all of it land.

San Geronimo Creek (a.k.a. Paper Mill Creek), which is one of few remaining spawning grounds for Coho Salmon, runs through both towns.

The Lagunitas Creek Watershed is home to the largest remaining wild run of coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) in Central California. These coho are part of the "Central California Coast Evolutionarily Significant Unit," or CCC ESU, and are listed as "endangered" at both the state and federal level.

The towns line the western end of the San Geronimo Valley, extending into the forested south ridges and slightly into the grassier northern ones.

Lagunitas is on the eastern border of Samuel P. Taylor State Park. Like the park, Lagunitas-Forest Knolls and the surrounding environs are lushly vegetated with large areas of coniferous forests.

Hiking and horseback riding are popular in the hills above the towns.
