Ring Mountain is an elevated landform on the Tiburon Peninsula in Marin County, California. This mountain was named for George E. Ring, who served as a Marin County Supervisor from 1895 to 1903.[2]

A number of rare and endangered flora inhabit Ring Mountain.[3] The landscape is strewn with many sizable boulders which exhibit a variety of lithologies including high-pressure metamorphic rocks of amphibolite and eclogite grade.[4]

Native American Pecked curvilinear nucleated Petroglyphs are here also, of the Coast Miwok people.[5]
