Old Railroad Grade Fr Road Professional Reviews and Guides

"This is the most popular route from the base of Mount Tamalpais (more commonly called Mount Tam) to the top at East Peak. Once an old railroad line, the grade is gradual and the trail a wide dirt road. There are many ways to modify this ride to make it longer, shorter, or more technical. Sweeping views of the East Bay, San Francisco, the Marin Headlands, and the Pacific Ocean follow you to the top. Want to ride a mountain? Ride this one. Trail surface: Wide dirt road."

"This figure-8 hike takes the Old Railroad Grade to West Point Inn, then returns via trails and Gravity Car Grade to the Mountain Home Inn. Heavy bicycle traffic on weekends."

"Climbing nearly 2,000 feet to the summit of Mount Tamalpais, the Old Railroad Grade boasts some of the best views in the San Francisco Bay Area. The steady grade of the winding dirt track, now frequented by mountain bikers in shiny Lycra, once was a weekend destination of ladies and gentlemen, who would travel by ferry from San Francisco to spend a day in the country."

"This hike follows the historic Old Railroad Grade as it gradually climbs up the mountain. Open chaparral areas provide great views. Heavy bicycle traffic on weekends."
