Mt. Tam 3-Peak  Sucess!

Covered the 3 peaks (west, middle, and east) of Mt. Tam, as well as skirting those lakes in Marin County.

Great trails  Sucess!

In my opinion, Mt. Tam has the best trails in the Bay Area. Each side of the mountain has its share of good qualities and the summit affords the best views of the area that I have seen, aside from the view out of the window of a 737 leaving Oakland Airport.

Great Spot  Sucess!

I really enjoyed the views and the area. It makes me think that living in the Bay area might not be too bad... then I looked at home prices!!

Old Railroad Grade  Sucess!

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

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; 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.

Unbeatable view  Sucess!

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.

via mountain bike  Sucess!

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!

Rain, wind, no view  Sucess!

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

Great Views!  Sucess!

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!

Hiked many times  Sucess!

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

Long Day RT to Stinson Beach  Sucess!

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!

I was in the Boy Scouts...  Sucess!

Nice day  Sucess!

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

Great 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.

Beautiful Day  Sucess!

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
