“A scenic misty mountain wonderland”
Just north of San Francisco's Golden Gate is Mount Tamalpais. It has redwood groves and oak woodlands with a spectacular view from the 2,571-foot peak. On a clear day, visitors can see the Farallon Islands 25 miles out to sea, the Marin County hills, San Francisco and the bay, hills and cities of the East Bay, and Mount Diablo. On rare occasions, the Sierra Nevada's snow-covered mountains can be seen 150 miles away.
There are tons of trails here, but there's nothing like hiking to the top of East Peak Summit for that incredible view. You can even drive most of it, park at the visitors' center, and then hike the last half mile or so, but that's no fun! If mountains aren't your scene, check out Stinson Beach.
Rent the Steep Ravine Cabins extra early--months in advance!
