Took the shortest route up. This was a while back, but I recall the views of swirling cloud over the Golden Gate to be fascinating. Would be nice to return on a crystal-clear day, but I doubt it would be completely empty then as it was on that morning. Great place to see before visiting Muir Woods.
Some friends were training for R2R2R hike, so they put together a 20 mile route for Mt. Tam. Started in Stinson Beach, hiked over to Muir Woods, then up Mt. Tam and back to Stinson. I was so hungry!!
Climbed in high school...
Biked from Bootjack parking area for a round trip of about 10 miles, and then the short hike to the top.
It's been a long time since I summited this peak. I think it must have been around 2008 with Josh and Josh.
Tagging a bunch of drive up P2Ks and CoHPs in the area. Awesome views from the summit.
Mount Tamalpais along with it's contending West Peak.
Another mountain I have been to several times, with only once being the non drive up kind. Gorgeous views of San Francisco at the top.
Nice day hike. Went to Marin Brewing Company afterwards.
Date approximate. With redwoods, views, and a good workout, up and back to Mount Tam from Muir Woods is one of my favorite all-around hikes in the Bay Area.
Nice views from the top.
Quick jaunt to the top. Fog over the ocean.
little let down with the road to top too. great views though
I've climbed this from Stinson Beach via Steep Ravine many times. I usually try to make it all the way up and then all the way down from Stinson, though sometimes I get lazy and catch a ride from Pantoll on the way back down.
Went over a spur of this on the way to Muir Woods
Stopped up for the views on a clear day between exploring Point Reyes, and meeting friends for dinner in the city. Glad I did, what a vista.
Lots of steps. No view on this cool cloudy day.
This is one of those funny ones. Every day, folks by the dozens drive to within a few feet of the summit and once there occasionally rub elbows with other folks who seem to be a little out of breath or on the sweaty side. I've hiked and scrambled from near sea level to the top a number of times. On this day, I set out from Kentfield, at first on a fire road, then opting to scramble up the northeast ridge. Along the way, I ran into a number of direct paths, straight up the mountain to the peak. They're well warn and eroded by runoff. I'm now all too aware why these shortcuts have become a problem and why I won't be going off trail any more. Too many folks.
Have done this several times. This day was with some French exchange studends.
