Beautiful Views of Bay Area!  Sucess!

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.

Hope to hit this on my mountain bike soon.

Family day on the mtn  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Cascade Dam  Sucess!

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.

Eldridge Grade from Ross  Sucess!

Descended via Rock Spring-Lagunitas. Amazingly, this is the only time I have ever hiked this Bay Area icon. I live too far south.

T'was a dark and stormy morning on Mt. Tam...  Sucess!

...and Ridgecrest Blvd. was closed 2.5 miles from the East Peak parking lot, so we braved the hazardous conditions and made our summit bid of the highpoint of Marin County on foot. We were the only ones on the summit and only saw about 4 or 5 other people on the road.

Route Climbed: Hundley Gordon Route  Sucess!

Very nice climb. Took my buddy and I about 3 hours to reach the top from Pantoll(we took our time). only bad part was the first sound we heard when we got to the summit was a baby crying. But the views of the city and the bay was worth it.
