Matt Davis was known by some as the dean of trail workers, and the trail that bears his name was created in 1931 as a more level alternative to the Dipsea Trail. This is a classic Mount Tam loop hike with a great mix of scenery: woods, open grasslands, coastal scrub, and Bolinas Bay and Stinson Beach views. While you can start this hike at Pantoll station— short for Panoramic Toll and named for the toll booth that was near this location on Panoramic Highway—I like starting near the Stinson Beach Fire Station.
