Like Blithedale Canyon, Cascade Canyon runs back into the redwoods and has a beautiful creek running down the middle of it. There are many nice custom homes as well as a number of 60′s and 70′s houses that can be a little on the funky side. Wooded hillsides and meandering streams provide Cascade Canyon properties a sense of privacy and serenity that exemplifies the Mill Valley lifestyle; yet all the while shops, services, and the amenities of town are just minutes away. There are some pretty amazing storybook homes in the flats. Sun is a factor here but get up off the canyon floor and you’ll see why people love the hillside living, with some amazing views.
Tucked up against the base of Mount Tamalpais, Cascade Canyon is literally just steps away from hiking and biking trails, including the rather infamous steps that mark the beginning of the climb for the annual Dipsea Race and access to spectacular hiking trails on Mount Tam and through the Muir Woods.
In terms of Mill Valley schools, award winning Old Mill Elementary School is the neighborhood school for Cascade Canyon, and serves most children living in the area. Junior high students living in the community attend Mill Valley Middle School then move on to Tamalpais High School to complete their secondary education.
