Loved our time on the trail and being in nature. On the weekend lots of people but all polite and pleasant. Parking a challenge.

We came on a cool partly cloudy day. The clouds rolled over the top of the mount and it was beautiful. A very scenic drive on the Panoramic Highway to get here with beautiful vistas.

We headed to the top (evaluation 2572) on a very cloudy day and it was worth the trip. Once we got near the top we broke through the clouds to beautiful views from above. The clouds followed the terrain like a flowing river with rapids!

You are fast approaching God's annual wildflower show. Mt. Tam is filled with trails, and a map is usually available at the ranger station. Even on foggy days, you can usually reach the sun well before the summit. Dress in... More

No, it was on the Cataract Trail. The road to Bolinas is also very scenic, and I encourage exploring that too. I was fortunate to go at a time when we were having record rainfall.
