  • We live in the bay area and took us about 1.5 hour to drive there. It's a great place to visit, especially the East Peak, around the Fire Lookout. The view is spectacular at the highest point 2571 ft,...  more »
  • This is a wonderful place to appreciate, especially when you do it on your bicycle. Get energized. See things "slowly" from your bike.  more »
  • It's really worth leaving town and climb to this easy, pleasant and scenic road! Got to the top, leaving the car you can walk along paths that follow the spine of the ' mountain ' face on several points of the Bay ... allowing a view to 360 *! Like Twin Peaks is an excellent vantage point over the city, so this is it for the Bay ... so much less constructions but much greenery and bleu ... forests and sky and sea ...!! The walk is pleasant and the paths are different ... the Council-if there's time-is to get them all ...

  • I always love hiking on Mt. Tam. On so many of the trails, you're bound to run into a waterfall of some sort, especially if you stay under the tree canopy. And the meadows and clearings typically offer amazing ocean views. The only downside is SO many people! This is not a place you go if you're looking for peace and serenity. But it is lovely and quite accessible.
  • Beautiful views from the mountain tops down to the beach. Trails are in great shape. Camping is affordable and all the sites were in good condition. Great spot to bring the family, even the dogs. Highly recommend exploring this area.
  • We live in the bay area and took us about 1.5 hour to drive there. It's a great place to visit, especially the East Peak, around the Fire Lookout. The view is spectacular at the highest point 2571 ft, 784 meter. Wear good sports shoes for hiking on the trails. The 0.7 mile rocky road to the highest peak is quite uneven you need to walk through it. You can easily find parking around there and need self registration payment. about $8. I shared the details in youishare.
  • Very beautiful. Quiet. Peaceful. Drive was amazing. Seen a lot of wildlife.
  • Beautiful place for a hike with tough stretches and easier options. Also has a wide range of views from forested paths with redwoods, to open views of the coast, to sights of the cities and bay. One of the best hikes I've done.
