We drove to the top of Mt. Tamalais and enjoyed the breathtaking views of San Francisco and San Francisco Bay from the top. You can hike from the parking lot to a summit at the very top, but we did not do that. Also, there...More

We hiked in from Muir Woods, up to the ranger station along Bootjack, and the ranger we met was fantastic. She gave us directions up to the Mountain Theatre, with instructions on finding some beautiful vistas along the way. Highly recommended, and easier to park...More

Wonderful trails, some with stunning vistas, others thru the Redwoods along streams. Parking difficult in the summer.

The trails are full of flowing waterfalls in the winter. Wildflowers start to come out in March too.

Drove up to the scenic fire lookout after hiking Muir Woods all day. Final hike to the top is moderately difficult but worth the effort. Beautiful 360 degree views of San Francisco, Oakland, the bay, etc.

We live in the bay area and took us about 1.5 hour to drive there. It's a great place to visit, especially the East Peak, around the Fire Lookout. The view is spectacular at the highest point 2571 ft, 784 meter. Wear good sports shoes...More

This is a wonderful place to appreciate, especially when you do it on your bicycle. Get energized. See things "slowly" from your bike.

You are fast approaching God's annual wildflower show. Mt. Tam is filled with trails, and a map is usually available at the ranger station. Even on foggy days, you can usually reach the sun well before the summit. Dress in... More

No, it was on the Cataract Trail. The road to Bolinas is also very scenic, and I encourage exploring that too. I was fortunate to go at a time when we were having record rainfall.
