Absolutely amazing

Absolutely stunning and worth all the drive. Try to get there early to ensure you don’t have to hurry. Choose an odd pay with less traffic.

One of the best hiking experiences: trail with shades, flexible trail length, drastic changes in elevation (73 floors according to iwatch). Exception views of the beach (Muir Beach) and mount range.

Huge area to explore
Apr 2021
This area is north of the Marin Headlands and the Muir Woods. We drove all around on the Panoramic Highway down to Stinson Beach. Many of the roads are very narrow and have sharp curves. The main thing to do in this park are countless numbers of hikes you can do, many from the woods / mountains all the way down to either Muir Beach or to Stinson Beach.

Beautiful hike
Feb 2021 • Family
With the governor keeping the state on lockdown, it’s nice to get back to nature and go for a healthy hike. When you reach a specific point of the trail, you get a get view of the Bay Area.

Amazing scenery and fantastic hikes.
Dec 2020
We parked near Bob Tempe Road in Fairfax and hiked a rather long 13 mile loop around the Mount Tam area, using many different trails. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking. Mountains, lakes, forests, streams, fields, waterfalls and creeks, all in one place. We walked on trails that were easy and we walked on some that were quite challenging. All in all, it was absolutely beautiful. I would recommend bringing a mask, because some of the trails, in particular the trails near the creek and waterfalls, were quite crowded and the trails were narrow. The more challenging areas had far fewer hikers, as would be expected.

Mt Tam means home
Nov 2020 • Couples
I grew up in Marin always under Mt Tam. I have hiked most of the side that faces Ross San Anselmo and Fairfax. The trails have been run and biked roads driven and a childhood lived with the sleeping lady.

Awesome Tam
Oct 2020
My favorite place to road bike, mountain bike, hike, run, and just generally explore. I would go every day of the year rain or shine if I could.

Great hikes with phenomenal views
Sep 2020 • Couples
The views of the city and the bay from the top of Mt Tam are unparalleled. You’ll be dodging plenty of cyclists and maybe even some hikers on the curvy road, but the journey is worth it. There are a variety of hikes to choose from of different lengths and difficulty. The road and trails are crowded on the weekend, so if going a weekday is an option, I would suggest it might be more pleasant and less crowded.
