Mount Tamalpais Views and Redwoods Hike
USD 85.00
Overview

Hike through redwood forest and oak woodlands at Mt Tamalpais, aka Mt Tam, a state park that surrounds the famed Muir Woods in the heart of Marin County. This 6-hour tour from San Francisco whisks you north across the Golden Gate Bridge before you set out with your guide on foot. Explore a variety of terrain and see spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and beyond. A stop is made at the West Point Inn for a snack.

What to Expect
Start your 6-hour itinerary with pickup from any hotel in San Francisco. Then make the journey with your guide across the Golden Gate Bridge to Marin, and disembark your vehicle at Mt. Tamalpais (entrance fee included). 

The hike takes you along the south face of Mt. Tam, which features sweeping views of San Francisco Bay and the world-renowned coastline. Keep your camera on hand while you trek past towering redwoods and alongside seasonal streams. 

The trek begins with a steady descent down the mountain and includes a brief stop at the historical West Point Inn for refreshments. Then you'll continue on a hiking path into the tranquil forest before making your way to open trails with additional views. Afterward, relax on the return drive to the city.
