Park Activities

Just north of San Francisco's Golden Gate is Mount Tamalpais. It has redwood groves and oak woodlands with a spectacular view from the 2,571-foot peak. On a clear day, visitors can see the Farallon Islands 25 miles out to sea, the Marin County hills, San Francisco and the bay, hills and cities of the East Bay, and Mount Diablo. On rare occasions, the Sierra Nevada's snow-covered mountains can be seen 150 miles away.

They have a great group campsite and the steep raving cabins are amazing! I love that you can be sitting by the campfire at your camp and then you can drive down to the beach for the day.

Short and rocky hike to the peak. Really hot since it's above the cloud line. Make sure the dogs don't overheat

There are hundreds of miles of great trails here. On rainy days, take a drive through the beautiful, misty forest.

The views are unbelievable on clear days. A great, 3-hour hike starts at the Pantoll Rd. & Ridgecrest Blvd and goes: Old Mine Trail > Matt Davis > Coastal > Cataract. Here's a trail map:

The legend is that mountain biking, itself, was born on the slopes of Mt. Tam. fifty years ago bombing down the trails on hand-wrenched reclamations of old Schwinn cruisers via rootsrated.com
