Make sure you go to the top of the Mt. Tamalpa where you will get a 360 degree view around the mountain, from the ocean to the bay area. Don't be fooled it is a walk up hill on rocky ground. On the road you can take some beautiful pictures and go through some beautiful redwood trees with green moss... More

Loved it! This was my second time hiking here. The first time was a year ago, and I got lost due to the lack of clear trail markings -- but I still enjoyed it! So this was my second time, and guess what? I got lost again! My advice: bring a compass, and get there early because parking is a... More

The drive was fantastic but the best part was the short hike to the top of the east peak of Mt. Tamalpais. So cool. The views up there were panoramic and you could see everything in every direction. Awesome!

Mount Tamalpais State Park has an amazing network of trails. There is hiking available for any level of hiker with a great diversity of terrain. From the ocean to peaks of approx. 2,600 feet, you can find sunny and shady trails as well. Check out the free guided hikes led by The Friends of Mt. Tam as well.

This is the perfect place for a picnic -for two or for a dozen. It has terrific views, plenty of space, and great scenery. Just be sure to clean up your mess!

Beautiful narrow, winding drive up to great views. Stop for lunch at mountain home inn on the panoramic highway. Not too expensive, outside tables with great views.

Two cars, four adults plus baby in stroller and one dog made up our group. The curvy, winding road up the mountain was a little scary for me, who has a fear of heights, but my husband enjoyed the same ride and commented on the beautiful condition of the road. We went to the East Peak area and took the... More

Great, expansive ocean views -- south to San Francisco skyline, glimpses of Stinson Beach; lots of trails, well-maintained.
