Great place to train, if you can stomach all the Marin County hot-tubbers.

Hiked with Cal Triathlon Team

ROUTE: Muir Woods Visitor Center to Pantoll (Ben Johnson & Stapelveldt trails); Pantoll to Mountain Theater (Bootjack Trail); Mountain Theater to West Point Inn (Rock Spring Trail); West Point Inn to "Summit"; Summit to Mountain Home Inn (Hogback); Mountain Home Inn to Muir Wood Vis. Ctr. (Ocean View Trail).

This route was difficult enough when keeping pace with the triathlon team. Great route to offer as many diverse views of the region as possible - sweeping vistas, immersion in redwood trees. Descent on Hogback is steep and can work the joints.

Clear day, GREAT view of Bay Area. Beauty is most certainly in the eye of the beholder; I suppose if one hoped to escape urban development and gentrification (as imposing and terrible as it is, I acknowledge), one would hit up Diablo or Yosemite. Solitude is best found elsewhere.

Hope to hit this on my mountain bike soon.

Started from Mountain Home Inn in late afternoon, up to the Railroad Grade to the Fern Creek Trail. Very nice and scenic trail. Reached the summit of the east peak just after sunset. Absolutely incredible view, but very cold and windy at the top.

A spiritual pilgrimage for mountain bikers - thanks to all those hippies riding beach cruisers down Mt Tam back in the day who got it going!

Did the short hike - but still got soaked. Then drove all the way home to Washington. Would like to have seen the views.

I can't count how many times I have climbed up and all over this mtn. One of the best parts, the German beer pub hidden on one of the trails!

I've climbed this mountain about 4 times this year, just as training and exercise. But quite a beautiful place!

Made a nice loop from Stinson Beach to the East Peak summit via Dipsea/Matt Davis/Temelpa trails. Returned to Stinson via Fern Creek/Rock Ridge/Steep Ravine trails. Great weather with a total of ~16.5 miles made for a fantastic day, topped off by some serious grub at Moylan's!

Came up here after doing Mt. Davidson in SF. Took the short route from ridge parking lot. Very nice weather, but crowded!

MtnAv8rGreat Place to Train  Sucess!

Along with Mt. Diablo, Mt.Tam is a great place to work in some really long day hikes of varying difficulty for training purposes. The view from the top is great. Always windy and about 20 degrees cooler than the parking lot at the base of the summit, so be prepared. Best in Fall and Spring. Summer can be VERY COLD and Foggy, and Winter is most often just to wet with gummy trails that are often closed due to water damage.

Started at Mountain Home Inn and then up the Fern Creek Trail. I counted 6 other county high points from the summit. Afterwards went and watched my alma mater (Cal Maritime) lose a heart breaker to Menlo College

Drove up and took the summit trail with my wife and 3 year old son.
The little guy scampered up the rocks like a marmot, collecting his
2nd cohp. fun day out with nice views. Only 49 more high points to complete CA. I'll be like 70.

I've been using Mt. Tam as a training ground for a few years now and have hiked it via the Dipsea Trail, the south face trail, railroad grade, and via a probably unknown/abandoned trail starting at Cascade Dam; this route is probably the most direct on the mountain, but it was a minor bush-whack the time I did it.
