With views of the bay and the east bay. The trails are well managed and open to the views. The park has never been crowded when I've been there.

This is one of the best hikes in the SF Bay Area, truly scenic and fun to hike. Start at the Pantoll Station half-way up Mt. Tam and walk down the Matt Davis Trail to Stinson Beach (takes about 90 minutes). Eat lunch and play on the beach (or walk the town). Then hike up the Dipsea and then Steep Ravine Trail through redwoods and dripping ferns and waterfalls back up to Pantoll (takes about 2 hours). Strenuous but a must-do hike for anyone who wants to see a lot of California natureside. If you have an extra 90 minutes, drive to the top of the East Peak and walk the loop around it. On a clear day you can see the entire Bay Area and all the way to the Sierra Nevada mountains!

We love going to Tamalpais State Park, as often as we can. Almost anywhere you go is a nature wonderland.
