  • Perhaps few travelers in SF decided to explore this last route the golden gate on the mountains of Sausalito. I dare say that the place is magical and only can see and experience nature at its finest, and enjoy the sea on the horizon. It is the street that leads you to Muir Woods tea recommend it

  • "Mount Tam" as it is commonly referred to by bay area locals is a fantastic spot for hiking and scenic drives. It is in the same park area as Muir Woods which is also phenomenally beautiful but I will describe that elsewhere. I have actually worked on the set of television commercials that have been filmed on location at Mount Tamalpais for big name car companies. The roads are the perfect look of the windy mountain road through a forest that looks great in a car advertisement. There are also great views of the ocean as well depending on which spot you are in at the time. This is definitely a good location to check out while you are in the area or if you live in the San Francisco bay then you have no excuse not to visit at least once.
  • Great park that connects the mountains with the coast! Pantoll campground, pancake breakfasts at the inn and the winding roads/trails (and the Gravity Car museum!) make Mt. Tam. a memorable trip!
  • Probably one of the best places I have visited this year. Multiple hikes with breath taking views of the city or the city covered in fog. They have events every month on star gazing and its free. Its a paradise for photographers. I saw few people on picnic dates here, sitting under the tree on top of the hill and enjoying food with great view. Probably I will also plan that soon. Plenty of parking available. You might have to pay at certain areas. Park closes at sunset, dont park your car after that or you will get a ticket.
  • You have the most beautiful views if the beach and the whooole shoreline...the trek is abit long but what you get at the summit is worth it!!! Try it out on a clear day and you will definitely love it... Put on sporty wear and shoes that can trek up a hill but most importantly ENJOY!!
  • If you want to get the experience of what redwood forests are like then this is the place. Definitely recommend the trail from boot jack campground to Muir wood national monument via the bootjack trail and coming back to the campground via Ben Johnson , staplevelt and Matt Davis trail
