Hikes in Mount Tamalpais State Park
1 Jan 2012
Mount Tamalpais is a popular park north of San Francisco with over 50 miles of trails, many of which are through redwood forest. In winters and spring, the forest is lush green and creeks full of water.
Best Months to Visit: Any time of the year is good. Winters and spring are best for lush green forest and creeks full of water. Some trails are in the open, which should be avoided in summers.
West Point Inn: A small hotel near Mt Tamalpais. They have a monthly pancake-breakfast event. I haven't yet explored hikes starting close to West Point Inn.
Hikes: Mount Tamalpais is a large park adjacent to Muir Woods National Monument and Marin Municipal Water District. You may form long interesting loops by combining trails from all these parks. Several routes are listed here: Bootjack loop hikes — Pantoll loop hikes — Rock Spring loop hikes — East Peak loop hikes.
