Corte Madera

Corte Madera is a town in Marin County, California. Corte Madera is located 3.25 miles south of San Rafael. The population is 9,253. In Spanish, corte madera represents the imperative command "Chop wood." The area was famous for producing redwood tree lumber which was used in the construction of the city of San Francisco.

Corte Madera is tucked away in the green Marin countryside. Incorporated in 1916, the Town extends from San Francisco Bay on the east side of Highway 101 to Mt. Tamalpais on the west. Corte Madera occupies an area of four square miles of land, plus surrounding water tidelands. This small vital town of nearly 9,425 residents, located 12 miles north of San Francisco, is generally alight with sunshine that peeks through fog shrouded Mt. Tamalpais. It is within hiking, biking and driving distance of some of the most beautiful vistas in the western United States.
