Drove up to the scenic fire lookout after hiking Muir Woods all day. Final hike to the top is moderately difficult but worth the effort. Beautiful 360 degree views of San Francisco, Oakland, the bay, etc.

We live in the bay area and took us about 1.5 hour to drive there. It's a great place to visit, especially the East Peak, around the Fire Lookout. The view is spectacular at the highest point 2571 ft, 784 meter. Wear good sports shoes...More

This is a wonderful place to appreciate, especially when you do it on your bicycle. Get energized. See things "slowly" from your bike.

Vistas galore across the bay and the Golden Gate. Foggy at times and can become sunny. Weather can be erratic so dress in layers. Perhaps carry a day pack for clothing and of course water. Hydration is important even on foggy days.

A drive up to Mount Tamalpais is worth the trip. A narrow winding road especially up towards the top. Once at the top, the views of Marin, the Bay, and the City are spectacular. Many cyclists trek up the mountain for a great workout and...More

Muir Woods was my original destination but I missed the turn-off. This turned out to be a good mistake. Since the destination was not the Park, "settling" for stops along the side of road led to post-card views of San Francisco and her Bay. Many...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.
