Las Gallinas is an unincorporated community in Marin County, California, 6.25 miles (10.06 km) south-southeast of Novato. At an elevation of 26 feet (8 m) Las Gallinas is near the interchange of U.S. Route 101 and Lucas Valley Road/Smith Ranch Road in San Rafael.[2][1]

Although consisting mainly of residential households, the immediate vicinity also includes a county park with golf course, wild life ponds, a private airport, shops, restaurants and movie theaters. A small industrial park houses low impact companies, storage units, and several non profit organizations.

The area is named for the pre-statehood San Pedro Santa Margarita y las Gallinas land grant.[2]
