We came on a cool partly cloudy day. The clouds rolled over the top of the mount and it was beautiful. A very scenic drive on the Panoramic Highway to get here with beautiful vistas.

We headed to the top (evaluation 2572) on a very cloudy day and it was worth the trip. Once we got near the top we broke through the clouds to beautiful views from above. The clouds followed the terrain like a flowing river with rapids!

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

Simply beautiful views and trails. Plan on spending the day if you have the time. We stopped on our way out of San Francisco and did not regret it!

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.

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.
