    This Trail is Awesome. When I lived at thge foot of Mount Tamalpias for 25 years, I never really hiked aor biked the most beautiful place on Earth. I just biked the Old Railroad grade loop to the East Peak Parking lot and back down and this is a 10 for the incredible 360 degree views. The ride is long and steady up hill to 2400 Ft elevation from about 200ft starting at the end of West Blithedale Ave. in Mill Valley. A house third of the way way up the trail had a basket of free organic apples and drinking water. How cool is that. Half way up at the West Point Inn also has water and refreshments when open. I may bike up with a pack and spend a night there in one of there cabins. Mount Tamalpais Rules!

    Well, they say this is where it all started "OK"
    I was disapointed, that most of it is jeep / service road, however the back side was cool. It is a sight I will remember, at the top of the East peak, looking 360 degrees around the bay area. You will be high above it all.
    The trail map was confusing (and expensive), but I was able to get around thanks to the trail markers.

    Later that day, road across the golden state bridge, which was pretty cool too...
